Laser Energy Cannon

This is a Laser Cannon I was working on as the main gun for the Sci-Fi Bunker. Made from thick (.125 I think) styrene and brass and styrene tubing. And no, this is not a Snub-nosed Laser.
 The side pod on this side is almost full-length.
 The left side pod is shorter to accommodate a gunner's chair in front.
 Adding the barrel and reciprocater. (Not sure what it does in this case, but sometimes you just have to go with the Cool Factor.)
 Do Laser Cannons need flash suppressors? Let's call it a 'concentrator.' It looks crooked in this shot, but it is not.
This is as far as I've gone. I do have the Gunner, so if time allows, I might go ahead and finish this.  Don

Better News

When last I posted, I was experiencing a lot of turmoil in my personal life, as well as suffering a hard drive crash. I am happy to say that both situations have been, or are being, resolved in a positive manner. I still expect to lose my house, but I should have some time before it happens. I am also more optimistic about surviving the ordeal, and also retaining most of my modeling tools, supplies, and projects. Also, the hard drive has been replaced, and I was able to salvage all of my pictures and documents. So, even though I will not be starting any new projects, and am packing away partially completed ones, I hope to post some things you haven't seen before. Give me a day or two, and I'll meet you back here.  Don
