English Carronade – Mantua

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.

With its large and richly equipped historical ship models such as the Sovereign of the Seas, San Felipe or Royal Caroline, Mantua Model has set absolute standards and he was the first to introduce laser cutting technology into the model making industry. Well-known Italian designers have drawn long-term model classics for Mantua Model that have become an integral part of the world of model making. But Mantua Model also has very interesting flight model kits, such as the large Cessna Cardinal, in its range in flight model construction through the takeover of the well-known manufacturer Aviomodelli.
