Product Description
Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/100

Set includes 7 cannons.  Carriages not included.
 
These models represent the "British model" 9' long 18-pounder cannons that are likely to have been fit to three of the US Navy's original six frigates, USS Constellation, USS Congress, and USS Chesapeake, among others.  These ships typically carried 28 of these weapons on the gun deck, 14 on each side.

American ships of the time are known to have carried a mix of 18-pounders.  According to noted naval historian Howard I Chapelle, British guns were often employed on American ships because, "There was in addition the old trouble of getting the proper guns manufactured."  American-made guns were often copies of British-made guns.  Mr. Chappelle explains, "The long guns and carronades followed the British pattern rather closely but had less windage and fired a slightly heavier shot."*

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.
