801 English caronade – XVIII century Scale 1:17


English Caronade Cannon Kit (MA801) – XVIII century Scale 1:17

This English caronade was built between the years 1776 & 1779 in Caron town Scotland, from which is taken the name. It was the first barrel cast in a pig iron foundry, really squat & with short range, but terribly effective during naval battles at short distance. Two english caronades were placed on the H.M.S. Victory fore deck.
