Medieval Bombard (working scale model Mk 2)

Another one. This would be a Monster for 1/72nd scaled bods and is more suited for 28mm.
A second before blast off!
As before the Barrel is made from brass tubing covered in paper and Card. The "carriage" is made from an old CD case, the strips glued together to give more thickness and then filed and rubbed with sandpaper to allow the paint to stick.
The Lifting rings are made from thick copper wire.
In Action. In the first Video the bombard has been pegged down as the recoil is pretty massive, which can be seen in the second Video. The force of the recoil throws the bombard off Screen and the "Hand of Bod " can be seen replacing it.
