gunner station linkage for replicating scenes like the flight from the death star in A New Hope. the gunner chair is linked to the cannon and both move simultaneously.
About this creation
As requested by Danny Johnson the above shots detail the linkage between the gunnery seat and the offset cannon (video below). there are of course more possible variations on this than I could possibly go over here. The simple mechanics are a couple of linked ball joints, plus a pair of 5L liftarms.
Seen in action below:
I've already come up with quite a few modifications to this, but in this instance, really had to keep it simple and clean. planning on replicating this on the underside of the Gallofree GKR TwinSun Medium freighter I'm working on and there is no space under there, so I've got to keep it nice and small.

omg that extremely aawesome!!! how did you think of such a creative idea? ~mOsEs
heheh, mother necessity, where would we be... (schoolhouse rock quote). i'm actually considering messing about with a geared mechanism for a bit too, as there are a couple of issues with this that when you build it become somewhat obvious.
