    If you find a pair of these lying around, throw them in.

    If you find one of these lying around, you'll lose your arm, and it 'll break the press.

    Definitely NOT honey, anything that angry has to be very acidic.

    Here is a glimpse of what it might look like (will be a different colour though)

    You are going to need a few liters of hombrew to build that, then you will have to change name to 240mm after you press a few heavy artillery barrels.

    I would love to get my hands on an old 16" naval gun barrel (or the whole gun maybe...)

    Imagine the bliss and harmony!

    Cool we can just call you 400mm

    100% if you have neighbors at the moment, once the ironworks starts and then the heavy artillery... well they will soon leave.

    I have only ever heard 105mm rounds going by which sound awesome, apparently the big ones sound like a train.

    safe to say nz navy will never get one. it has 9 real guns and a decent sized engine.nice muzzle blast and shockwave wouldn't want to be in front of them when fired.

    If I were one of those billionaire type guys, I would have someone build me a battleship and Id have a crew to run it. Put some fancy stuff inside and cruise around sinking rogue containers during the summer!
