WW1 French 75mm artillery gun. Scratch built


Make Magazine just posted a blog about a replica WWI French artillery gun I constructed for Shakespeare in the Park in New York City. It's theatre, not film, and it's a replica of a real item, not a replica of a prop, but it still fits here, right? I thought it was cool because other than the wagon wheels and control valve wheels, it was built entirely from scratch.

I have some process photos and details of the build on my blog (here and here), but I thought I'd share some extra photographs I haven't posted anywhere else.
