Hello all. Finally finished my build of the "Paris gun" this morning

"The Paris gun" was used by the Germans in world war one. It began service in march of 1918, and the guns sole purpose was to shell the city of Paris, France. At a 211 mm barrel. The gun could hit Paris at a range of 120 km (75 mi), Safely tucked behind the Germans own lines. In its life time. Some 320-360 shells where fired from the gun. "The shells were propelled at such a high velocity that each successive shot wore away a considerable amount of steel from the rifled bore. Each shell was sequentially numbered according to its increasing diameter, and had to be fired in numeric order, lest the projectile lodge in the bore and the gun explode"
The gun was removed in August of 1918 with allied advances threatening the location of the gun. None of the guns where ever captured, and it is believed that they where destroyed to prevent capture.
