Hi Glen, I absolutely didn´t know that you´re building another ship ( I though that James Tuft was the last - SHAME ON ME !!! ).I have to say the same as to your previous ships - perfect choice, the work on the highest level of quality

I hope I can get them correct when glued in! Need to do some work on deck first, though.

paper cannon

This is how I make the cannon, there are 10 to be made, I card tube to start mine were 110 #card, easier with typing paper(but can end up not as straight) or 65#, ran out of 65# for the moment so used 110 I like how stiff the tubes were when glue dry, then added two typing paper layers, then rolled thin trim of paper strips for details, they won't be all identical but will look pretty close, a bit of trim sanding if needed at rolled edges and at the tip and breech (where a toothpick tip was glued and sanded round).

They look good. I find that 110# tends to crinkle when I roll it.

Those are really fine cannons! Encouraging to see that you can accomplish those rounded edges on the trim parts. - Leif

Hi Don It works sort of if use a larger diam wire or nail for initial rolling, but the 110 lb does tend to delaminate, I used a paper clip wire for smallest tube.

Thanks Leif for stopping in on this I used a bit of sandpaper to smooth and some Elmer's to flatten down any paper fibers from sanding
