Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

Phil, Marcus, Robert, thanks for the kind comments. made a start on the various bits and bobs, started with the tool boxes, as the ones in the kit are solid alloy (good doorstops), I used wood and brass, and also used some fabric to simulate the water proof canvas around the lip of the lid http://pi...

Re: Jeffs 25 pounder

Marcus, Vince thanks for the comments, most of the firing platform completed, put in the 10 and 5 degree marks, not sure if I need to mark the single degrees (288), added the lifting chains, but you do need the turnbuckles to lock the firing platform in the up position http://pic80.picturetrail.com/...
