    Speed Modeling Challenge #267 - Cannons

    Speed Modeling Challenge #267 - Cannons

    Rules:
    1. Every week there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit. You should spend no longer than the allocated time, then post a render of your model. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modelling times is essential. How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what is asked for.
    2. Post a wire-frame and a render at 800x600 or larger. (For wireframe help go to: http://www.artssphere.com/plugins/polygoncoloring.php
    3. LightWave must be used for modelling. 3rd party Plug-ins are allowed.
    4. You can enter as many times as you like, posting each in this thread. If you run over the time, the model can still be posted but won't be subject to the judging.
    5. Time spent on texturing, setting up a scene for a render and rendering is not included in the allocated period.
    6. The winner is judged by the challenge starter and the prize is to set up the challenge after next week's.

    Well, I'd rather be shot by mine than your's, that's for sure. I had a miniature cannon as a child, and it was similar to your model. Think it was a souvenir copy of the cannons mounted on the Swedish royal ship of the king Vasa, which went to the bottom on it's maiden trip. Anyway, thank you!

    This is similar to the real one my father made years ago. His barrel was brass and brass strips around outside of the wheels. Other than that not a bad resemblance.

    Yeah, I found the cannon online and modeled it after it. It pretty much looks spot on. Wow building a real cannon, that must have been fun!
