the metal cannons are actually rods in 700 .. but if you do the diameter conversion you can use them on this scale too .. :)

Having built this same kit OOB and without mods, I gotta say, you're doing the old girl justice.

Keep up the good work!

I used a set of photo-etchings specifically for this kit of the company WEM ... but being very poor I also added some self-built extras
