HI guys
just finished my 1 72 scratchbuilt paris railgun.
any comments welcome.





I have more photos to load but my Norton antvirus program says Kitmaster site has got a virus and keeps cloing it down.

Barry, looks great - I had to get over my first impression that in the first photo it was floating in a pond... it's a glass table obviously!!

So is it totally scratched, or are there bits of converted rail wagon models under there? Would be interesting to see some of the build progress photos.

I have just loaded a batch of photos to the Kitmaker gallery and also have Norton and I have never had any problems with it. Let's see if there's any known issues...

I had the exact same thoughts!

Really great looking build, Barry! I know you said it's 1/72 scale, but what does that actually measure out to in length?

Super job! It really does look like the rail gun is on raft in the middle of a lake.

Superb! Extraordinary! And many other superlatives I can't think of right now.

Wanna send me that glass door for my ships to rest upon!?

Fred... it's a **table**...!! Use it as a door if you want, but the legs are going to get in the way.

Barry, forgot to say I did open this thread reporting your issue, but perhaps you have fixed it already? I notice you have 16 photos of this model in the gallery.

Hi Mathew
I tried to send you some photos of the build but can not get them onto the gallery, same problem.
