Model Gallery 2 : 12.5inch RML on C pivot barbette mounting with sunken way

 

Model of a 12.5 inch gun by Nicholas Baigent. This is similar to the armament originally mounted in Maker Battery on Maker Heights, Plymouth. The model is scratch-built in 1:40 scale from styrene sheet (except the barrel , which is turned from nylon rod, and the figure, converted from a  1:35 scale soldier. Nick comments that the plan shape of the loading stage may not be entirely accurate and he is not too sure how accurate the uniform is for the 1880-90s either.
