Trick to using the bow's cannon portholes

How do you use those openings in (now "old") bow pieces? How do you mount a 2x2 flag (or anything else, for that matter) as a gunport lid?

Well, I found this trick while I was building the RTS SAN LEGONIO, and it solved that problem.

part list:
  • 2557c01 Boat Bow
  • 4070 Brick 1 x 1 with Headlight
  • 3623 Plate 1 x 3
  • 2540 Plate 1 x 2 with Handle
  • 3024 Plate 1 x 1
  • 2431 Tile 1 x 4


The headlight brick on the bow piece,
plate 1 x 3 AT THE HALF STUD on the headlight brick's side stud, with a plate 1 x 1 and the plate 1 x 2 with handle,
with a tile 1 x 4 on them.

Get a good fiction contact with the plate 1 x 3's backside half stud and the hollow side stud on the headlight brick. And have a upper plate level cover/secure the top stud on the headlight brick.

I think it centers well over the gun port opening,
it's close to the hull, and it hangs down just right.

I built it in colors, so that you can see this trick in these photos:

Very interesting, I'v never used those holes for guns before, in my newest ship (not posted yet) I don't even have room for guns in the front, there is something special on that spot :)
