Receiving Mission 9.2 Log.....
Log Received.
Begin Mission Log:
Well, Spark wasn't injured too badly so he's on the mend. He insisted on staying with us till the end of the campaign. Spark's a tough cookie. The rest of us will have to pick up some of the slack.

Did I mention I like guns? Especially big ones. That's why I get to drive the cannon.

End Mission Log

As termed by Brickdoctor, the giant death ray has sliced down the center of the cannon. :tongue:

I enjoyed this build quite a bit. My job was to partially recreate a vehicle, that had already been made by LEGO. My first thought was; "how do I make this different enough from LEGO's model but still make it look right?" I do think that I came up with an acceptable solution. Because of the size requirements, I had to make only half of the cannon.

Nice, Masked! You've kept the design of the set well while improving it a lot. Love the sling, too. :thumbup:

I'm loving the half gun Masked Builder, and the clone with a sling.

Nice work MB.
I really like the way you always incorporate something special like a hard to do depth to the vig or as this one, you simply slize the cannon in half to make it fit. :thumbup:
