fiddling with artillery ....

I decided I needed some more variety in the cannon used for my ECW games; preferably a couple of lighter guns. So I embarked on a little bit of conversion work.

Raw materials, a 40mm saker (at the back) and a 28mm cannon at the front with a spare gun barrel.
I removed the barrel from the 40mm saker, and replaced it with the one from the 28mm cannon; the spare barrel I then put on the 28mm cannon. Both cannon received new wheels using some small plastic lego ones. Below another saker and the two converted guns...

  1. They look fine, Allan. I find that smaller guns are a lot more "usable" than the really big ones.
