Forbodian 'Vonder Veapon' spotted

Reports are just in that King Boris III has been personally overseeing the testing of a new weapon.  This delightful model (only the wheels are plastic - the rest is wood & metal) actually fires a small plastic pellet - and makes a rather impressive 'bang!' as it does so.  Indeed so impressed was a visiting emissary from Freedonia that he was heard to say "Bloody hell - I must get one of those!"  The new gun is sufficiently powerful, however, that it's use in warfare (well Funny Little Warfare at any rate) has been banned.  The risk to paintwork is too great!
My source within the Forbodian War Ministry suggests that further testing will take place at the Knuston Proving Grounds this weekend.

The device in question was obtained from Len Cooksey at  Ivanhoe Figures who tells me that while he has no more available, he can order them from his contact in Argentina(!).  Those attending COW this weekend may place orders through me.

Wow..that´s a very nice looking artillery piece.
From the photos I can´t tell wether the barrel is looks a bit silver inside. Can it fire...for real I mean?

It is. The fact that it actually fires is a bonus.

The projectile fits in the end of the barrel. And it really does fire. And go "bang!".
