That is a very cool design.  I think that's the dumbell from the collectable minifig weight lifter right?

Very clever, I like the size.  It's really not that mini.

Very nice cannon. I may have to borrow your design utilizing the dumbells for my next ship, with credit where credit it due of course, and of course with your permission.  :pir-classic:

Really clever design. Nice job.  :thumbup:

Nice little cannon you've got there.
Smart use of the weights and spyglass. :thumbup:
I would use a black spyglass, but I would not have thought to use that piece for cannons.

I don't have the ability right now, nor do I have enough dumbbells,
but I think these dumbbells would look really nice on a version of my small cannon.

This may be a rather dumb question but in what set did you get the face of the soldier in the second picture?
Your scene is very nice :thumbup:
