This is the development thread for a 2.5D towed howitzer, loosely based on the M102.
A few days ago I sketched the basic layout but only now I managed to print it and do a test build. Note that it is a VERY HASTY build, something like 15min. build just to see if the parts fit together.
Well that's it for now. I have to change some lengths in at least five different parts, increase tabs and then make a new test build. That will have to wait, though, as it's past 2a.m. and I wake up in less than six hours...
While you wait for the pieces to dry, I suggest assembling the cannon and cannon support. The reason is because they are probably the two most "fiddly" parts so it's better to tackle them while you have patience
Glue the pieces that make up the cannon, then glue the green support. Use the lines drawn on the sides of the back cannon piece as a guide. Afterwards, glue the springs so that they are leveled with the other support, as in the picture.
That should be enough if you intend to mount the howitzer on a vehicle like Kiladecus suggested. Otherwise, the next step is building the base. Start by closing the coffin-shaped base with the bigger prismatic shape.
Stick the axle through the slits on the front box of the base and glue the other wheel just like before. I recommend cutting out most of the contour of the wheel before glueing, then finishing the job.

bravesirkevin: Monty Python is mostly just absurdist humor coupled with a snide mockery of convention. They're also just trying to cheekily see what sort of things they could get away with, in much the same way that South Park does.

marcpasquin: I don't get seinfeld either to be fair so its not a british humour thing. I *can* quote Red Dwarf episodes.

marcpasquin: I just don't get monthy python. My wife made me watch Monthy Python and the Holy Grail and, yes, there are a few funny bits. But on the whole, I don't get why a bunch of vikings rappelling into a restaurant while chanting "spam-spam-spam" is funny.
