The kit supplied barrels are far too big. I replaced them with these 28mm ones from Amati. You can get them with carriages, but I made my own. To my eye they look in proportion, unlike the original cannon:

Trouble is, the AOS book is such a good reference source that you'll find yourself wanting to enhance the kit in lots of other ways. Don't get me wrong - the kit makes up into a fine and decorative model, but for me part of the fun in this hobby is looking for ways of enhancing kits to make them more historically accurate and realistic and to increase my own skills and enjoyment. There are far better examples of Royal Caroline on the forum than mine - for example check out those by Marsalv and Doris.
