Seems like I can poste again without having to search for replies. Also had problems figuring out how to use pc updates etc.. Figure out how to use things & they change things to confuse us (me). I was happy with XP & 7 ! Well I've worked on accoutrements for the gun. Made both handspikes (wooden poles that mount on the "trail" for pointing the gun), new ramrods with sponges for the bore, water bucket for sponging out the bore between shots (proud of how that came out) and a pyramid of cannon balls (correct size). The only other miniature Civil War cannon I've ever seen this perfect in every detail, was made by a foundry pattern maker in his spare time. This will end up in the St. Maarten museum when I kick the (water) bucket. I saw a well made one that was about 85% of this detail sold on line for $1,200. Happy camper this !
