I found a mini-wood lathe in the basement the other day and started playing. I've made wooden barrels (like oil drums) and large gun barrels, sorta like a basilisk, out of wood. I'm machineing (out of wood) parts that will go into scenery and custom models. I don't have a mill yet but imagine the posibilities. With the right tool you can fabricate almost anything.
Anyway here is how i am makeing the gun emplacment. Make 4 large bore support-type guns on the lathe. To make ammo feeds and 'drum clip' type ammo boxes i am simpley takeing a large diameter wooden dowel and putting several smaller diameter around its circumfrence. after that im taking some premade 'wooden discs' from a craft store and glueing one on either side. so the entire assembly looks like a funky barrel. using green stuff i intent to create an ammo feed from the drum clips to the barrels. once thats done I'm mounting the four of them sort of like how the a hydra assembly looks. making the mount will just be a matter of cutting out appropriate shapes. i may even just use foam core board to do it.
Sounds like you've got everything figured out. Any chance of some pictures? This project sounds like it's coming out really nicely.
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, even if it's wrong.
An easy way to make fixed gun emplacments is to use the turrent of a tank preferably a basilisk cannon because without the basilisk's tracks and hull it looks alot like an emplacement all you have to do is make some terrain around it to make it look like an emplacement. All you have to focus on is the terrain around it.

my local GW used a basilisk for a gun emplacement it looks great well worth doing
