Progressing slowly I had to wait until the hobby shop restocked so I could gather some more bitz
All the major cutting done on the truck so now just re assembling and detailing, once the truck is done I think I'll go back to finish the quad 50 I decided to get more accurate looking barrels and it was cheaper to buy 14 barrels than 2 x 2 packs, then I will start on the gun platform

Nice project!

Who sells .50 cal gun barrels in packs of 14? That sounds bizarre...

Even a B-17 only needs 13...

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

New brass barrels installed they look pretty good and a lot closer to the movie ones, just waiting on some new tools and I'll start on the gun tower , then the barge and lastly the paddle wheel setup
Found some good reference images on this recently made video about the Hellfire Gunboat and the owner sent me some hi res copies after I left a comment here https://youtu.be/L42V1f2O_VM

Postal delay on the new saw and jig so I set about building the barge, the model will be topping over 50cm long !

Quite a suitable length for a gun barge, I'd have thought. ;D
