    It took a second look before I noticed the Patarero. Prepare to repel all boarders!! You’re new flying wires look good too.

    You've got good eyes. Flying wires are on the BOTTOM of the wing. My landing wires are original. :-)

    The gun is a replica of an 18th century "swivel gun," a small cannon that could be clamped to rails of a ship or gunnels of a boat. It's almost all wood, started life as a balluster on a stairway rail. Barrel is only drilled ~6", can't load or fire (though can be used to launch bottle rockets).

    Damn, dude..."Patarero." Wasn't familiar with that term. Ain't many nautical terms I miss.
