1/72 scale wooden gun carriages

Can anyone suggest best options for buying 1/72 scale wooden gun carriages to replace those horrible metal ones in the Victory Models kits?

Cal, they would also have to be specific to the period of the ship you are modelling - best bet may be to make them yourself?  Plenty of guidance and How to in the various logs and some plans in the database.

 

cheers

I don't think there are any wooden off the shelf carriages.  If the model is the Victory itself you will need a number of different sizes so I agree with Pat's post that you are far better off making them yourself.

Thanks guys.

My kit bash build is HMS Bellerophon. I'll only need carriages for the gun deck, quarterdeck and fo'csle and yes, I'll probably build them myself.

For my last build - 1/64 scale HMS Fly - I bought Caldercraft carriages and mated them to RB Models brass cannons, but since I'm now working at 1/72 scale, I was wondering if there was a source I wasn't aware of of laser cut carriages at that scale.

Thanks for your thoughts.
