Hi all, I'm about to start Constructo's 1/85 scale St. Helena a 135 ton schoone-brig launched in 1814. My plan is to add extra detail and then paint it to model a typical RN Schooner of the same era.


I'm wondering what the typical armament a similar sized RN vessel would have been. Would it be similar to HMS Pickle which I believe had 8 guns? (Would these have been carronades?)


Also what size of gun/carronade would fit with the 1:85 scale ship? The smallest I can find is about 22mm.

Thanks in advance,
