The wood is all laser cut for accurate assembly and the manual is clear and detailed with comprehensive illustrations. The kits are supplied with a wooden display base complete with a brass engraved nameplate. These static models make excellent display pieces and with some 18 models currently in the range there is surely something to interest everyone.

This English carronade was built between the years 1776 & 1779 by the Carron Company, an ironworks in Falkirk, Scotland, from which its name is taken. It was the first barrel cast in a pig foundry, really squat and with short range but terribly effective during naval battles at short distances. Two English carronades were placed on the H.M.S. Victory’s fore deck.
