Product Description

Deluxe 1:16 scale Signature Model.

Features a solid brass barrel cast in a single piece. In addition, the kit contains laser cut wooden parts for parts, precision cast Britannia metal detailing which includes bolts, shackles, ramming rod, water and grease buckets. Wheels are accurately reproduced with wooden spokes and metal hubs and axles.

Developed in France for Emperor Napoleon III in the 1850s, the smoothbore 12-pounder cannon became the most popular gun of the American Civil War. It was light enough to be easily maneuverable and heavy enough to destroy field fortifications almost a mile away. Firing solid shot, spherical case and canister, it was extremely versatile. By mid-1863 nearly half of all field artillery pieces were Napoleons. The Union had more than 1,000 in its arsenal and Confederacy over 600.

Civil War Limber Model Kit  1:16 Scale, Signature Series
Civil War Limber Model Kit 1:16 Scale, Signature Series
The limber was an indispensable piece of equipment during the American Civil War. It was a simple two-wheeled cart designed to carry an ammunition chest containing gunpowder and shot for the artillery pieces. A team of horses was hitched to the limber and a cannon was hooked on to its rear when the army was on the move.

The ammunition chest lid was large enough to seat up to three men. However, sitting above the gunpowder was dangerous, so after the first few months of the War, only the driver rode on the limber. In times of battle, the limber and horses were left behind the lines of fire.

This kit contains laser-cut wooden parts for the main components, walnut strips, photo-etched brass for chest corner pieces and bands, plus Britannia metal castings for carrying handles, bucket, hooks, rings and many other details. You’ll assemble the wheels with machined aluminum hubs, walnut spokes and rims.
