Hello everyone, I just I'd share my cannon and Ribauldequin design with you. You may use both, as long as you give me some credit.   :pir-classic:

Here's my 12 pounder, which I used in my PTV entry, "The Pirates of San Pedro". It's really quite simple...

And a rear shot...

And here's my Ribauldequin.

I know it's a bit medievel, but I thought it looked pretty good beside a 1700 century soldier.

Thanks for looking!

Wow...
Nice Cannons! Those things look like they'd pack a deadly punch!
That 12 pounder looks ace!
I find that if I don't have a signature, people just disregard the last few lines of my posts!

Waw, I love that :pir-cry_happy:
Never seen the 4 gun-cannon before in Lego. And I like the simple, but nice and effective design of the 12 pounder :pir-blush:

The wheels on the cannon look a tad skimpy, but it is really brilliant and the simplicity is great. :pir-laugh:

The 12-pounder looks really interesting but I cannot see how the barrel connects to the truck. Is it just sitting there or is there a connection I am missing?

I was curious on that too.
Perhaps you can post an image of the 12 pounder, with one side removed?
Already thanks :pir-blush:

Sure thing! Here you go...

Sorry about the bad picture quality, but I think it gets the message across.   :pir-classic:

I used this piece to connect the barrel to the truck to keep the barrels rounded shape. The axles are cut flex tubes, in case you're wondering.

Like I said, you're welcome to use the design, as long as credit is given.

Very cool!  For the axles, as you said they were cut flex tubes, but do you think a short bar (like the harry potter wands) would work?  I might have to test this out.

Thank you Exotrator, for the picture :pir-blush:
Nice techniques used in it. Perhaps I'm going to use it in an upcoming MOC.
With your credit of course :pir_laugh2:
