The first one has. A 24 " barrel, the overall is about 40, the next is a 22 about 28 overall, and the last 21 and 27 overall. The first is a breach loaded, with an intermittent thread, the other two have a vertically dovetail breech block.

Default Coastal defence gun

Hello Dougie,

I have searched high and low for artillery plans and have been unable to source any.
May I ask where you sourced the defence gun plans please?
Thanks and regards,
Dennis

Hello Albert,
If you search with Google for "model cannon plans" and open the images page of the results, you will see pages of plans. Mostly cannons, no field or naval artillery.
Some have dimensions also cannon ratio reference tables.
Worth a look.
regards,
Dennis

Hi Dennis and Albert
The coastal defence gun I found in the book " model engineering" by Henry Greenly
It wasnt a complete set of drawings but did have a scale and a couple of views.
It was a quick firing naval gun but my research showed they were used on land as well. I used this drawing and searched for coastal defence guns on the net and found quite a few good pics of guns that are still in place, quite a few of them in your part of the world Dennis
Hope this helps
Dougie

Default Making a model cannon

I had made a small cannon of sorts. I used measurements of a short cannon or cannonade I think they are called. I used a tough stainless as the body( ruined all my drills and carbide cutters getting the bore) . I had modeled after the "thunder mug" , but having a small lathe only at the time, I downsized to the " thundercup" Has a .750 bore and a 3/8 chamber.

I haven't fired it yet but is made for black powder. First firing will be from a hole dug in ground and a long fuse for testing purposes. It will not fire projectiles at all but a heck of a noisemaker

I grew up reading magazines like Popular Mechanics and Hobby. From this one I scanned an old set of plans for a naval cannon. I am working in my own one and it is going nice, but my daily work dont let me go to workshop since months :-/
I know that there are many people looking for this kind of plans thru the web, so Im glad for sharing this stuff and encourage to everyone to spread them. BtW, this is my first contribution to this site.

Default Albert - check Wikipedia

Good day Albert,

Check this link to Wikipedia.
There is a comprehensive list of WW11 artillery.
Photos and specs.
Would allow you to go to blue prints and match the pdf. to the piece.
Should allow an opportunity to scale back.
Regards,
Dennis

Blue prints offer free PDF. sheets. You will need to sign up. Check Weapons tab.
