marinero Posted November 25, 2014 Share #1 Posted November 25, 2014 I have been searching for items belonging to Fragata Colombia for several years and while living in US I had seen a picture of a carronade on top of Guayaquil's highest hill. I went to Guayaquil while in Ecuador and climbed more than 400 steps with my knees screeming but it was a lifetime oportunity. I took paper,pencil,a tape measure,camera and a mold copier. As soonas I got to the top I saw seven carronades in line and I was so happy. Finally I had found an important piece of missing history. Took several pictures and upon very detailed inspection I saw a royal crown with WP initials and I got supicious something didn't look right. I discovered with much dissapointment the dam carronades were made of fiverglass ! On the distance they look so real ! After arriving at home I had to apply ice in my knees ! Here I post the pictures. Now I will have a harder task of finding out the source of the mold for the plastic canons. avsjerome2003, augie, CaptainSteve and 4 others 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
