    Cannons Steel Brass Aluminum

    In 2018 I posted a couple of cannon that I made in the shop. Today I am going to catch up on my cannon posting.
    Model Cannon and carriage
    Here we go:
    The first one is a copy of a coastal defense cannon.
    Next we have a Whitworth with an aluminum barrel and walnut carriage.
    Three ship cannon of which 2 are steel and one is brass. All on walnut carriages.
    Last and best ( I like breeches that operate) is a loose copy of a Whitworth with a threaded breech.
    The Whitworth has a manual firing mechanism but the cannon is for display only and not for firing, barrel is aluminum!

    Rest of the story to follow.
