Britishcannon26.jpg

This is absolutely the best miniature muzzle loading cannon I have ever seen.  This is a British model 1871 cannon used in India made by Dan Storen.  This is one of three Dan built and is serial number 2.  Just unbelievable detail from all the cast brass hardware to the dished spoke wheels to the attention to details, fit, and finish.

Panzerfaust-1.JPG

This is a neat 1/2 scale World War II 60mm German Panzerfaust made by master miniature maker Vic Williams.  The Panzerfaust is a one shot portable grenade launcher used primarily for taking out tanks.  27 9/16" long overall.  The grenade part of this is turned from a solid aluminum billet.  The grenade body measures 6 1/2" long and the largest diameter is about 2 7/8" and has a Nazi dirty bird on the forward end.  There is a shaft with fold-able fins inside the tube that deploy when the Panzerfaust is fired.  The tube body is 29/32" in diameter and 16 1/8" long.  Finish is OD green paint with stencilled red paint markings.  There is a decal on the grenade with firing instructions.  The sight has graduated markings for distance.  This piece is mechanically functional but of course there is no propellant or explosive charge.  You can pull the split ring which will remove the cotter pin.  You can then configure the sight to the desired distance, and pull the grenade out to see the propellant body and fins.  Complete with the tan canvas carry bag with German markings.  Vic made four of these and this is number three.  Really well done!
