More Cannon Assembly

The HO scale 170 mm gun from ArsenalM has this sheet of etched brass bits.

The most important etched parts are the walkways on the sides of the gun trails.

I have cut them off, folded them up and rather than hang them by other small etched brass bits, I am gluing them directly to the trails. Not perfect, but much stronger and for a wargaming piece, strong is good.

They look really good when they are installed. So far I have been putting them together with CA glue but will go back and strengthen up some of the joints with epoxy.
