Some images and drawings used in the preparation of the 12.5 inch Rifled Muzzle loading gun video. I took these photos at Fort Nelson and Fort Nothe. Photos of the Nothe Drawings were made at the National Archives, Kew.
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.
