I finally got my hands on some BrickArms Venturi exhausts and so I was able to start putting together my horse artillery battery:

I didn't think to take pics of the parts or building of the guns but I did take some snaps of the caissons. Maybe I'll pull a gun apart  and take a pic or two in case anyone wants to see what I did.

Thanks to all the inspirations in the Cannon index. I did not look at it while working on these but I am sure some things I saw there gave me some ideas.

I would love to see how you have built the gun.

I never knew Brickarms had such an interesting part as the Venture Exhaust.

As soon as I saw the MAAWS it's all I could think of. The other bits are nice and hopefully I can use them elsewhere -  otherwise those three parts cost me $6 each. :laugh:

I'll take one of the guns apart and post the pics when I get a chance.

Thanks for providing the details on how the gun is constructed!

I'll need to be getting me a few of those fine exhausts and do some more browsing at the brickarms shop to check what else is in the current portfolio.
