Hello Dear Friends,

The small seawater pump on the bow was, among other things for the hygiene of the crew on board.

Hello Dear Friends,
 
the main armament of the la creole consisted of 20 30-pounder carronades.
First I made ​​a prototype, gonna learn how to make all the parts I need.
The production of the prototype can be seen in the following images.
I hope that you enjoy it.
Soon I will show you more pictures of the finished Carronade.

Hello,

here I show the continuation of the production of Caronades.
The supports for the gun barrels are made ​​of brass precision casting.
I have the Carronade only temporarily installed to see whether the parts fit.
Later, the brass parts are still blackened.
