VSF Verne Inspired Moon Cannon
« on: December 17, 2017, 10:25:05 AM »
Hi All,

I heaven't done much VSF scratch building recently, been busy with other projects plus I have so much stuff I'm not sure how much more I really need!

Anyway a bullet shaped thermos I bought for part of my brother's Christmas present inspired me to build my own version of a 'Moon Cannon'...


Lots more pictures and some 'VSF historical' blurb here...

Cheers!

Love it. Though that privy is a bit of an OH&S issue.
