yes all I wrote would be good and usable for Doc Blakes gun model as well. everyting can scale up to his gun as well but if he has glued in the mounting posts then that would be a problem. Might be better to make a new modified gun if that it the case.How about using cannons in Doc Blake’s gun station!
A real live fire demo from battle station diorama, just add a few scale crew members to it!
. . . you can make it yourself with some chemicals but I am not going to tell you how to do that because it is dangerous. . .
Paulv1958; the powder in these caps which I suggest is very small and even if the Sawdust plug jams in the bore there is absolutely no way the charge will rupture the cannon. you would have to bore out the cannon so the cannon wall is on the order of the thickness of the cap container wall thickness (maybe 2-3 thousandth) before the charge will breach the wall. Even if you filled the brass cannon with caps and braised in a plate covering the cannon mouth and lit it off you would not breach the wall of the cannon. Not that I advocating doing anything of the sort but just saying hypothetically. I would imagine the braised plate would be blown off of the end or plugs at the initiation tube would be blown off. Using the pre bored cannon hole there is no danger of rupturing the 1-2 mm of cannon wall. It physically impossible.hmm Seems like all good till it jams and Uh Oh...
I've see first hand when a jammed firearm explodes and what will do to a face!. Not Pretty.
Bit like a firework in a water pipe!.
Damn Jay----were did you get that from? That is a magnificent piece of engineering and water cooled as well but I can not think
I used to help out at a gun shop but I didn’t want to be paid so they would give me guns and ammo.Damn Jay----were did you get that from? That is a magnificent piece of engineering and water cooled as well but I can not think
of where you can put it that is fit for this site---HAhaha
I tried using black powder once to blow up a fire ant nest. I filled the hole with powder, ran a line of it about a half meter (18inches) and bent over and lit it. Poof! Before I could even stand up, it all went up in a ball of smoke and flame. I couldn’t see. Everything was black. I felt of my face and noticed my sunglasses were on and covered with soot. My mustache, eyebrows, and hair in the front were curly from the burn. Did not try that again.
I have a boat you can mount it on. Only pic I have; lost them but it is a 2 masted bomb ketch 22 ft in length. The did on mount the masts in these pics. Love to shoot your cannon off it here in Wisconsin.
