1/17 English Carronade

Mantua 1/17 18th Century English Carronade


I bought this a few months ago to go with my 1/100 Heller HMS Victory as this is a model of the carronade located on the foredeck of the Victory.  This monster fired a 68 pound shot that must have been just devastating.  The kit is all wood except the cast cannon and a few other small bits that are metal.  It went together quite easily, you will notice the white liquid in the fire bucket.  That's a water based sealer called Mod Podge; when it dries it will be clear and look like water.  I was gonna wait till it dried, but I'm bored – so I took the pictures – here they are…
