Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/146

Set contains 24 carronades.  Carriages not included.

Recommended for:
 
These models represent the 32-pounder carronades fit to many navies' early 19th Century warships such as the US Navy's famous frigates USS ConstitutionUSS United States, USS President, USS ConstellationUSS CongressUSS Chesapeake, and USS Essex

These 3D-printed models accurately capture the features and dimensions of the 1808-pattern carronades manufactered by the Columbia Iron Works of Georgetown, Maryland including its unusual stepped bore (the bore had a smaller chamber at the rear allowing for a smaller charge to be used). 

In 1808, the Secretary of the Navy directed Henry Foxall, owner of the Columbia Iron Works, to produce 24 carronades to replace the relatively small 12-pounder long guns on Constitution's spar deck (not the 24-pounder long guns on her gun deck).  Some historians assert that Foxall delivered all 24 of the 32-pounder carronades that were ordered, therefore all of Constitution's carronades were weapons of Columbia Iron Works manufacture.  If so, Constitution went to sea with these weapons in 1809 (click here to learn more).  


These accurate, Columbia 1808-pattern models are intended to replace the incorrect 1840s-pattern carronade (actually a "gunnade") type often found in model kits.  Gunnades have a different shape and trunnion position than do true carronades.  Even most of the carronades that appear on the real USS Constitution today are actually 1840-pattern "gunnades"!  

Carronades were first developed in Scotland at the Carron ironworks from which they get their name.  They were sometimes referred to as "smashers".  Carronades were designed to be a very powerful, short-range, anti-ship and anti-personnel weapon requiring a smaller crew to operate than a cannon. 

Although there were minor variations among real carronades, these models' scaled dimensions and details match Columbia Iron Works factory drawings.  The most noticeable difference between Columbia-made guns and Carron-pattern guns is that the Columbia-pattern gun has a hemispherical cascabel (breech).
