Set includes 6 cannons. Carriages not included.
Recommended for the Airfix 1/180 scale HMS Victory, etc.
This set of models represents the Royal Navy, Blomefield 1790, long-pattern (9 feet long), 12-pounder cannon weighing 1.9 tons (1714 kg).
HMS Victory carried three different types of 12-pounder cannon at Trafalgar.* She was equipped with:
- 12 short-pattern (7.5 feet long) 12-pounder cannons on the quarter deck
- 2 medium-pattern (8.5 feet long) 12-pounder cannons on the forecastle
- 30 long-pattern (9 feet long) 12-pounder cannons on the upper gun deck (this set of models)
All three types of 12-pounder cannon are available separately. All types feature a raised King George monogram.
Although there were minor variations among real cannons, these models' scaled dimensions and details match dimensions from tables published in "British Smooth-bore Artillery: a Technological Study to Support Identification, Acquisition, Restoration, Reproduction, and Interpretation of Artillery at National Historic Parks in Canada" by David McConnell. Their details were matched to those of surviving cannon.
