    Looks like a steampunk vision of a cannon rather than a real model, but i also like the look of it.

    It is a quiet funny looking cannon, and it isn't the spitting image of Zamzama, but I only found 4 other scale models and they all look different....

    And, apparently, for all it's ferocious size and appearance, it wasn't a very good cannon in any case! It was horrendously difficult to move around and when it Was used a few times, it ended up "being badly damaged" and was turned into a monument!

    Certainly an interesting piece Kris.

    Is there a piece missing on the front? (4th picture).

    At any rate I rather like it.

    Date?

    [Edit: Date of the model I meant.....]

    Cheers

    Hey Tim,
    some small parts are missing.And I think a little chain went thru the corner poles as well.
    I guess it must be dated some where around the independance of Pakistan....maybe a bit earlyer...
