Mini-Cannonry (Oct, 1954)

FIVE years ago Harold Herd’s son Howard, now ten, asked his Dad if they could build a cannon at their Pasadena, Calif., home. They began making tiny models which actually fire and today they have a collection of artillery ranging from the year 1400 to the Civil War. The father-son team has been so successful that they have now found a ready market for them in kit form.

    Now the father and son mutual project would probably be interupted by a SWAT team.

    “Dad, can you build me an artillery range?”

    Great, kid would be expelled and sent to an alternative school just for the answering the question, What did you do over the weekend?

    Mcubstead: Probably only in Southern California.

    Holy crap that looks cool. Not safe however, but cool. When I was a kid anything miniature I was all over, my fav game was a fantasy game with miniature monsters, heroes, and furniture. I probably would have either blown my hand off or shot my little brother though.
