A few days ago I posted that I had gotten the RAFM Space 1889 Elephant Team for Christmas. Early this morning while everyone was sleeping, I finished it. It doesn’t come with any crewmen, but I have some other “dismounted” Gatling guns and crewmen I can use when the gun goes into action. I plan to use this in Northwest Frontier and VSF games. I think it would also look good on Mars.
As I began work on the RAFM kit, I remembered that somewhere in a box, I had an old Hinchcliffe elephant gun team. It was missing the two riders and the two crewmen sitting on the limber. It was also missing the barrel of the cannon. I decided to finally assemble this kit as well. See above.
I made the barrel for the cannon by starting with the plastic tube that had once protected a paint brush. The breach was made from the cap for a tire valve. I added a couple of extra bits from the bit box. I think the outcome was pretty good.
I am looking forward to seeing these two guns in action on the table soon!
