    In my Internet search for gun systems I ran across a gent down in New Zealand that was selling his 1/96 scale Artemis Attack Cargo ship and I really liked his Roller Bearing single shooter rear gun system. Link: https://rcwarshipcombat.com/threads/1-96-uss-artemis-attack-cargo-and-spare-parts.444088/ Is this a one off system? I've yet to find any other information on this build.

    I'm interested in the specifics on how he captured the roller bearing and attached the upper barrel section and sprocket gear. This looks like a pretty straight forward system that could easily be achieved with a minimum of machining.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    There was a build article on that some where, but my HD is still in the middle of recovery.

    The build article for that was on the old Battlestations website, which is gone.

    I think I have a PDF of the article somewhere, but as I recall it was very short on details.

    Anything would be appreciated. I think I've figured out part of it, but would love to see the original build information.

    I'm still not sure I have a total grasp on how the bearing retainer is attached to the T.
