11" Dahlgren Gun 54-mm (1/32 scale) Resin Kit
Made in USA by Cottage Industry Ltd
# CO SG-003
John A. Dahlgren of the US Navy and Thomas J. Rodman of the US Army got together and actually revolutionized the smoothbore cannon for use as heavy large caliber siege and naval guns. The solid shot used could pierce a ship's armor, and the gun was also capable of firing grapeshot, creating a "spraying" effect, when fired up to 300 yards & capable of inflicting much damage. 11" Dahlgren guns were used on such ships as the USS Monitor and USS Kearsage (which sank the infamous Confederate commerce raider, the CSS Alabama). Dahlgren guns were also used by the south and were on the CSS Virginia.
Kit comes with a standard swivel type naval carriage and basic handling implements (as shown). Relatively easy to build, this kit represents the most historically accurate rendition of this famous gun.
