A development animation of the four barrelled Nordenfelt 1″ machine gun of 1883. This gun was developed as an anti-torpedo boat defense, and fired a hardened steel bullet to a range of 1,500 yards, although its effective range was only 400 yards. The objective of this animation is to show the loading mechanism. No audio.
Hi, I’m Rob, otherwise known as VBBSMYT.
I create the animations on my iMac using Cinema 4D, which I find very intuitive, and allows me to add smoke and flames, and then send the model to my trusty Render farm.
I make my models as accurate as possible through reference books and particularly good drawings. You may have seen my animations of early torpedoes and machine guns on YouTube. I enjoy finding out how things work and it has been fascinating to track the development from the late Victorian period up to World War 1.
