It can look like anything really, but in general a large cannon.

As for what it does, go find the codex.

It's a gun, that goes boom oddly enough.

And it's usually red. That way the shells hit the target quicker.... :p

As a Boomgun? No. As a Big Shoota? Of course.

A Boomgun is basically a battlecannon, or a earthshaker cannon with a shorter barrel.

If you use a gun of that size you should be ok. :)

(oh, and as Grimtuff said, the heavy stubber would work perfect as a big shoota if you want one of those.)

-Chimmney from the CoD terrain kit

-buy a toy and take a saw to it.

Any type of cannon with a mid sized barrel will do, hell you can just take a piece of placticard or pvc tubing and be done with it.

Well, this has turned into a modeling question, and in my opinion the best place on the web for inspiration and advice for building ork vehicles is The Waaagh (http://www.the-waaagh.com/forums/index.php?showforum=2).

Lots of nice orky stuff over there :)

The quick answer is that the name of an Ork weapon is more of a general idea of what it does, rather than any sort of official designation. Any gun an ork can fire one-handed (like a pistol) is a Slugga. A weapon an Ork has to carry with both hands is a Shoota, and heavier than that, a Big Shoota.

Therefore, a Boom Gun is any shell-firing Big Gun on a Looted Vehicle that's not called a Kannon.

All I did was took a toy BB gun, removed the barrel and then attached it to the chassis. (of course, the chimera chassis was too small, so in true Ork fashion, I had raise the roof of the Chimera to get the gun to fit.)
