I have decided that my next build will be a scratch built battle station. Does anyone know of a reliable source for larger scale preferably brass cannon barrels? I have been searching but have not come up with anything.


Thanks in advance

Caldcraft produce a 24pdr in 1:32 scale, it’s the only large scale cannon that I’m aware of, but it is expensive at US$41.41 for a single kit from Cornwall model boats. There are other cheaper large cannons on their website but their ‘shape’ isn’t necessarily authentic, but depends on whether that’s a consideration for you.

Thanks Morgan


I checked them out and yes that is a bit more than I want to spend. In the mean time an extra brain cell or two kicked in. Since I have already built the Model Expo version in 1/24 scale I sent them an e-mail to see if they would sell me just the barrels.

Do you have a local machine shop?  Some while do a run but price per each varies on the quantity.  You'd have to supply plans.   Maybe if others are interested you could share costs of setup, etc.
