"It took me a whole year to accomplish this build (including planning and collecting bricks). My main goal was to present the model in a flying position, which was a huge task.

For ammo, it uses a Mini Nuke piece, which looks just like a giant zeppelin (sourced from the 5956-1: Expedition Balloon set). Continue reading for more.
