Thank you for posting this incredible work Zolly.I used to see a lot of Roland's work on Facebook but he doesn't post much anymore.
The cold casting of the cannon's really intrigues me.It looks like he moulds the silicon around the master and then carefully tears it to produce the split to remove the master.This would then fold back together PERFECTLY to cast the cannons in resin.It looks like Roland used plain Polyurethane resin first then discovered the product it in the later pictures.Now this stuff looks fantastic.Definitely gonna Google it.

Kind Regards

Nigel

I assume it would be hard to find acceptable canon in this particular scale.
I think you can buy cannons in any scale or custom made but there is a price,I can ask Roland about the cost to make them his way but I can’t guarantee I will get an answer

the profiled strip is installed on the side

Of course, there is also the chest ...

the sacks have received a bit of aging and to avoid that the crew of some other ship could have strange ides ... even the name of the boat
