    I've worked with those in the past. Not shiny enough.

    The cannon bits are coming along. Also starting to figure out the mounting geometry. 14.5 degree offset with a 5 degree down angle is the plan.

    Getting creative with the mags to clear a hull frame.

    Very fancy. Hagerstown in April is coming up, looking forward to seeing you and Atlanta there (if possible).

    The hard part is next. CO2 delivery and control.

    Laser bore sighting the cannons. Hitting the waterline 18" out.

    Got the barrels locked into position. Shooting for a 1" spread, 1/4" apart. Next step is underdeck mounts for the rest of the cannons.

    This is one big can of whoop-ass in the bow of this Atlanta.

    I was going to nickel plate them but that would have added .0052 grams of weight. ;-)

    That could be offset by fishing the BBs out of your SS. Lol

    Had to shelf the Atlanta for a bit while I built a Lego table for the gkids. That's done so back to the Atlanta upgrade. Not much done this weekend except for a turret getting glued on and a splash of paint. I now have to wrap my head around an extremely experimental (and lightweight) quad-solenoid/reservoir installation.

    They are in a decline and will probably be out of business in the next year or two. They don’t have much on their website anymore.

    If you want ship kits and other accessories to build a ship I would visit https://www.southjerseyshipyards.com/

    Know anyone who sells blueprints? Mainly the pocket battleships like the Lutzow ?
