I'm planing for the future to build a sloop in scale 1:48, and for armament I will have 10 6-pound cannons, unless convinced otherwise It's probably going to be 18-1850. I would like to scratch-build the ship, and of course also the cannons. I have done some research, but have not been able to find the measurements of a 6-pound naval cannon, and part of this is probably because I don't know enough on the subject. So the question is, what are the measurements of a 6-pound naval cannon around 1800? For those who can read this, here is what I came up with, but I had to use very doubtful sources, and some guessing. The left side numbers are lengths, and right side width (spelled that one wrong) The gun should be 1,65 meters long real life. Thank you for your time Edit, added 4-pound to title
