My first try at getting some deck guns built has been good as a learning curve.  I build almost randomly it seems and I cannot recreate the items easily as each one is unique in many ways.

So, I have decided to try to make some deck guns for my Steam Wars Naval force that can be recreated, either by the simplicity of the design or by casting the items and reproducing them in resin.

All geck guns need a mount to sit on and secure them to the deck.

Can’t have them falling over when the boat bobs about on the odd wave can we…

Mounts need to put the gun at the right height as well. Got to keep all those health and safety executives happy that the crew wont be bending or lifting too much you know…

Handles in the right places for people to get at them easily. Most important for ease of use.

All sharp bits and finger trapping hazards should be boxed in, and definitely no electrics or working parts exposed…

That Gun shield will definitely NOT do as it has lots of sharp edges.  must get a replacement made up, pronto…

Needless to say all a work in progress so far.  Lots if potential though.
