This English Carronade was built in Caron town Scotland, from which is taken the name. It was the first barrel cast in a pig foundry, really squat & with a short range, but terribly effective during naval battles at short distance.
This model kit features quality brass, metal and wood fittings. The wood detailing is all laser cut to ensure accuracy of assembly and the plans provided are clear and detailed. This makes for an excellent display piece.
Mantua has built its reputation on elaborately detailed model kits. Their model kits use photo-etched brass, cast metal fittings, cast metal and machined turned brass fittings. The detail in their range of wooden model kits is exceptional.
