Schoolproject 1: Cannonade
So, one of the projects im participating in at school is to make a 3D short of a gun crew in the Swedish fortress Karlsborg. The time period it was active was after the disintegration of the Swedish empire (Yes we had an empire back then). Sadly for the fortress it was outdated before it was even finished, still it remains as a museum.
So, the cannon I'm making will be of the design they had at Karlsborg, its main use was to shoot grapeshots at advancing russians (the grapeshot being a hail of small bullets, turns the cannon into a massive shotgun).
This is how far i've come, still need to optimize it somewhat but the design is complete.
