Winter MocOlympics, Round 3, Jamaal Blanchette VS.CommanderFreeling!!!(真真) . Sorry for the long wait, but i managed to build my very first Steampunk creation, the DCP, (Dual Cannon Platform). . Opponent: Commander Freeling!!!(真真)
This would be my first ever attempt at Steampunk, and when doing research, found Steampunk to be quite an interesting genre, and I was inspired to create what is called the Dual Cannon Platform.
with the use of gears, it is able to rotate a full 360 degrees and the cannon can actually aim up and down.
The top cannon has a cap which can be put on and removed when needed.
Here you can see the area behind the main platform, where there is a temperature monitor, and where the big guy rotates the knob, which rotates the cannon.
This machine moniters the tempurature of the cannon, when the cannon gets too hot, the machine lets out steam to cool the cannon down, preventing overheating.
Gustov's job is to rotate this lever, which will either raise or lower the angle of the cannon, depending on which way he rotates the lever.
When he wants to come out or enter the "hub", the ladders are put down so he may easily climb or descend.
Silvio, the smartest of the three men, is the gunner, he is the one shouting orders to both of his helpers so they know in what direction and what angle the cannon needs to be put in order for him to shoot.
Here, you can see how the cannon is able to rotate, hopefully i will upload a video here to show the cannon rotating and aiming up and down.
Support stand, there is one on both sides of the Cannon Platform to help keep it stable.
From left to right: Silvio, Big Man and Gustov. They work together to make a great team.
