32 pound ship guns 1:48 scale


Recommended Posts

Al:

The best advice I can give is to find barrels that are a rough match for the size of the barrels you need. You are looking for a barrel about 2 1/4" long, maybe slightly smaller. That would be about 9 ft long at 1/48 scale. Model Expo and Bluejacket Shipcrafters are two companies I can think of off the top of my head where you can look for different size barrels. They are not going to sell them by scale so much as size. You need to look for the size barrel you need.

That depends on the era and nation of the ship, Al. If you are talking about a late 1700 era British warship the 32 pounder cannon was about 9' 6". At 1/4" scale that would be roughly 60 mm. You can purchase 55 mm cast barrels from A. Baranov which are quite exceptional but pricey. You may reach him at shipmodelscontact@yandex.ru
