Set includes 2 cannons. Carriages not included.
Recommended for the Airfix 1/180 scale HMS Victory, etc.
These models represent the 2.1 ton (1.9 tonnes), 8.5 foot, Blomefield medium-pattern, 12-pounder cannons fit to early 19th Century Royal Navy ships-of-the-line such as the 104-gun HMS Victory. Known as "medium 12-pounders", Victory carried 2 of these weapons, both on the forecastle. The models feature King George monograms.
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.
