Ron, nice to see you back at the bench.
Proportions of the gun and car look good.
Nice work.

Nice build Ron. Just don't forget to keep that gun barrel back and not overhang the end when you glue it down.

Ahh thats what bits sites are for - you can pick up the tank cannons etc for a a few dollars and as that's all you'd need it saves you from getting a kit you'd never use.

They did a few years ago, even used the same loco and trucks, looked quite neat.

Thanks for the comments Rick and Dave.

Dave, thanks for the reminder.

Ross, all we need now is pictures of the armored train.

.... Ross, that's quite a train indeed!!!
It looks a bit like a 5" or 7" scale, "Park Train" type.

I can see how the poor bloke turned his fighter plane, into a Messaschitt!! LOL!!!

Traitors in the ranks, Ron. Weed them out. Utmost urgency. Project X must not fail.

Due to recent events security has been stepped up on the Gundola build. The gundola has been moved to a secure area and security guards with dogs are patrolling then grounds with order to shoot first, ask questions later.

Worked on the secondary armament last night. I bought some 1:35 scale WW1 Hungarian machine guns and assembled one last night. While a great looking model it's too big for the car. After I positioned the main gun in the car and added the gunner I have about a third of the car is left to mount some machine guns. I'll look at what I have for 1:48 scale machine guns tonight.

The TML have acquired anti security secret weapons, Molson's and bacon. Ron, I have some 1/48 maxim guns if you need a couple.

A tactical retreat is advisable under extreme circumstances.

A strategic redeployment can then be utilized with a smokescreen where necessary.

Remember Sun Tzu: "All warfare is deception."

Truer words were never spoken.

Happened across this photo last night and thought of your build.
Perhaps the gun is a bit too large, though.

Dave, what a great photo, amigo. If the train hauling that car ever stalled, they could just fire the cannon to get it started! Holy cow, one round from that monster would take out my whole village...

Ron, never have truer words been written...
