Scratchbuilt 6 inch heavy gun.

This is a cereal packet and a bit of styrene tube and rod. Thanks for the inspiration must go to Mark (Tin Shed Gamer) over on the LAF. I lifted the template of the carriage from his cereal packet 8 inch Howitzer. His traction engine and gun project can be seen here.

I'm afraid I bottled out of doing spoked wheels. I need to build up my confidence and skill level with this sort of thing before I attempt such a thing.

To give an idea of size, the Battery Major, a Mutton Chop figure, stands along side the finished object. I think I need to give it a name.....

Nicely done. The wheels look fine.
