Here's the most updated vid with sounds ans smoke. I went to a local hobby shop this morning and picked up a model train smoking kit and threw this together. Here's the vid and a few shots of the train smoking kit in my Carlart Cannon...

Are the motion activated parts taken from one of those cheapy dummy cameras? I bought one of those about a month ago and was gonna start taking it apart. If so...a little insight would be mucho appreciated. awsome cannon by the way!

Yes PT it's the same mechanism that controls the toy camera. About 6 months ago I started a link with a shot and video of one of those cheap toy surveillance cameras. I canabalized the toy and had to rework the top of the Carlart Cannon's mount/base. With a little patience and a few hours you will have a pretty wild addition to your suit or life size bust. Didn't a lair member put a cannon of the licensed bust? I thought I remembered a shot or two of one with a cannon. Any of you guys know anything about the mechanisms the make model trains smoke? I think they use some type of tablet or drops? That's the next aspect of this cannon to tackle.

I don`t have my cannon yet, but SeaHunterr took a kool pic of his, and mine is just like it... hope he doesn`t mind me using it. The Pirk/Jensen AVP Accurate Large Calibre cannon.

Cool...I'm gonna start taking that camera apart right away as my pirk P1 and my Carlart cannon are both set to arrive. As for the smoke, I checked this out at a model train store a couple of months ago for a film effect. It will need a basin for the liquid to sit in. Probably not the best route to go for a cannon. I willl check out some other sources and keep you posted

Hey Al,
I couldn't think of a better cannon to wire up like that!
Nice job! I'm thinking the rotational speed seen in the video is a set one.
Too bad there wasn't a way to speed it up a bit. Either way, it rocks!
Now, I've got to send you my cannon to do the same with. I wonder how much weight the motor can support, considering the larger cannons like the Celtic one. A friend of mine is working on a lift mechanism to bring it from the down (off) position to the upright (on) position. I've been meaning to give him a call, now you've gone and lit a fire under my ass.

My custom pride and joy, the Atlantean Cannon. The mold is dead, but the original cannon lives on to be molded again some day!!!

Carl, your cannon rocks! You can speed up the panning by adding a little more juice, Replace the two AA's with 3. The motor seems maxed out at the weight of your cannon though! You could try to replace the motor with a higher torque Radio Shack motor! Please post an update of the raising and lowering I would love to see that in action!

Here's mine - It's Carls' first cannon. I painted it up about a year and a half ago. I made the base out of a block of wood, and just played around with my dremmel. Nothing all too serious, just some half-assed carving. Heh.
