Little Gilda by BurnOut42 Little Gilda by BurnOut42
Finaly finished. Biggest and most complicated gun I ever made. Little Gilda is a dismounted anti-aircraft cannon from the book Fallout: Equestria. Based on real aircraft cannon Mauser BK-27 LKCV, 1,063 cal. I made her as close to what I imagined as I could. If you have questions, fire away, but not sure if I'll answer them. I re-made Gilda 4 times, tired of this girl. That's why statuette looks so crappy. And coloring too. Sorry about that, but I'm burned out for now.

looks good, the square tubing on the back can be structural and funnel rounds to the chamber, though the gaps at the top create weaknesses, love the sliding bar for recoil dampening, you nailed that. Really like it, and as always, I'm stealing your design XD

Inside the metal "tube" there is rubber-tanium tube, so it's not THAT weak))
Be careful, she's a bitch to draw)

That's awesome. Looks a lot like the weapon Kkat said inspired it, too.

I'm not going to try to wrap my brain around a pony-portable triple-barreled 27mm cannon though. xD

This looks Pure Genius. Attention to detail and keeping the weapon, logical and canon are above and beyond what I could have imagined. :heart:

Just taking my time to really look ar this weapon, the slot where it originally would have fitted into a mount is visible and neat looking. The trigger/firing mechanism looks like it could be operated by both a pony and a Griffin which is an excellent bit of forethought on your part Burnout as Little Gilda was probably operated by ponies originally. The battle-saddle looks brilliant as well, comfortable too which is a nice personal/functional little detail as a really uncomfortable battle-saddle would make the weapon ungodly annoying and uncomfortable to operate.

The colours whilst not amazing, do fit the weapon as it has likely been exposed to the elements over the last 200 years, giving it a bit of a weathered look as it is. Shadows, shine and light are as always, excellently applied. Butcher Statuette is also good for your first Griffin, compounded in difficulty by the fact she wears Griffin Power armour. Overall a very good first try for a griffin. Also "Size Matters" is absolutely appropriate for Butcher's Statuette.
