Nice historical gun kit
I received this kit from a good friend. I had always liked ship cannon miniatures so I took my time my time with this kit. Easy to build with a lot of room for scratch building such as the tools; ram rod, worm reamer, powder scoop, lint stock and so on. I even scratch built the bulwalk wall and included the gun port opening. The base is a little tight for this cannon, so you may want to make it a little bigger. Research the proper gun tackle rigging out method and add a few rigging blocks and you'll have a nice scale cannon for your desk top. I would recommend this kit to any one who loves naval firepower both young and old. A very nice kit and the cast cannon is a beauty!!
