Product Description

Catalog (click here)

Scale: 1/192   (1/16 inch = 1 foot)

Set contains 24 carronades.  Carriages are not included.

Recommended for the Revell 1/192 scale USS Constitution
(note: some Revell boxart erroneously states the model to be 1/196 scale).

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 Constellation and USS Essex

These accurate, 1805-pattern models are intended to replace the incorrect 1840s-pattern carronade (actually a "gunnade") type often found in model kits which have a different shape.  
Even the carronades that appear on the real USS Constitution today are actually 1840-pattern "gunnades"!  It is possible that US Navy warships built prior to the War of 1812, such as USS Constitution, had carronades that were indistinguishable from the "Carron 1805-pattern" guns (click here to learn more).  

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....The long guns and carronades followed the British pattern rather closely but had less windage and fired a slightly heavier shot....The American carronades appear to have been very close copies of the British guns in all respects."*

These 3D-printed models accurately capture the features and dimensions of the Carron 1805-pattern carronade.  

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. 

Although there were minor variations among real carronades, these models' scaled dimensions and details match drawings of the Carron 1805-pattern gun by noted naval historian Brian Lavery as shown in "Anatomy of the Ship: The 74-gun ship Bellona".
