These cannons are great! I thought i was the first one using palm tree trunks for cannons. Great idea to use pots for the thicker part of the cannon, I didn't find a way to do that.

I like! The only trouble I can see is the roughness around the edges of the palm tree bits, but that can't be helped :pir-tongue: If only they'd make a cone that's in-between the 1x1 and 2x2 :pir-wub:

I saw the gun was indexed. So many thanks to the admins!
However, it is modeled after a 32 pounder gun in a 1:40 minifig scale according to original specs.
So, I'm sure the scale of the gun is correct for a genuine 32 pounder, although it is currently listed as a 12 pounder.
I can understand since the design is sleek  :pir-tongue: , but its barrel is 1.5 suds larger than the original lego gun in real life.  :pir-classic:
My bad :pir-blush: I don't know much about cannon sizes - I've corrected it now, and indexed both.

To the barricades!

Very good! i though, if possible, would try to use cheese slopes instead of 1x1 plates.

Just my opinion.

Do you mind if I use that design for my MOCs? I'll give you full credit. It's the best cannon I've ever seen, even better than TLG's!

Dear all,

thanks for all the cool comments! I'm glad most of you like my gun design.
Sure you can use it in your MOCs. That is the main reason for posting it.  :pir-cry_happy:
Kind regards,
