Vavasseur cannon almost done. Parrot still on the way.

As the Vavasseur and Parrot cannons' contruction continues I get so excited to see all coming to shape. The base of both cannons are done and just needs some touch-ups and finishing/painting. The 250 lb. Vavasseur is a bit smaller than the 500 lb one in Callao near and outside the Real Felipe fortress. The size of the one in Arica is what I'm going for. Transportation and being able to dismantle and construct it again is the key here and also shape accuracy.

Compared to pictures taken while there at the top of the morro in Arica, this thing is quite big.
So excited to see it almost done finally!!
