Here's the design for the 8 inch gun

It will be 23 cm long when printed (which is to scale, the gun itself was 146 inches long

That is certainly very kind and I appreciate the thought but Rad Schuhart has put me in touch with a fellow is who is already tackling the barrel project. The original gunboats had a mix of 42 and 32 pounders, 30 pound Parrot rifles, smooth bores etc. however for simplicity I’m going with all 42 pounders and one Parrot rifle. They will have LEDs to simulate firing. Thanks for checking in!

:thumbup: :wave: Oops I forgot to ask what scale you are building your model to! The designs are done to 1/16 scale but if your model scale is different then whoever prints them can adjust the scale accordingly in CURA or Blender, so if you are working to 1/72 scale then the printer would need to adjust to 45% of the design size when printing

If you pm me I'll send the files and you can pass them on to your contact.
