I recently posted an Instagram link to images of Malcolm Appleby's Kalahari gun.
If you like his engraving style then there's an opportunity to take a look at some moderately high resolution images of his Phoenix gun at the Gavin Gardiner website. It's going up for auction at the end of the month, sadly at a couple of orders of magnitude more than I can afford :).
Here's the link to the catalog:

Click on the catalog to open it. The images are on the cover, the title page and pages 66-67.
The resolution isn't quite high enough to see individual cuts clearly but it's not horrible.

i speed-flipped the catalogue. the pair of 20 bore O/U barreled actions would be a fun project.

Yes I saw those and had the same thought but importation would probably be a nightmare and I'm nowhere near ready to try something like that. If it were easier and cheaper I'd think about acquiring such for a future project.
