Is this a kit or scratch and the scale would be helpful.

 

For the brass, take a diameter from the actual gun (if you have it) or from the plans. Order stock appropriately (slightly larger) and then center and round the stock which is why to go slightly larger.  For length, measure from the plans.   I'm assuming you're wanting to make scale guns instead of something generic.

I used 1/4 inch I believe. As for the length, I think that I used 1 1/2 inch. I had purchased 12 feet of it and had them cut it to four foot lengths. 12 feet was the minimum length. I got 16 cannons for every 2 feet. I used the extra length to chuck it in the lath and mill. I'm in Europe or I would send you photos.

HA! our statement "I'm in Europe or I would send you photos " immediately brought to mind the question ,"why would that matter?' Then it dawned on me that you meant that you're not at home and don't have access to the subject. Minor point but it sorta startled me.Sorry to interrupt.😊

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
