Handbuilt 1/16 Union Army Columbiad 15" Fortress Gun 1865 HB/022

The five years of the American Civil War led to considerable experimentation with ordnance and artillery. In 1844 the work of one man, Lieut. Thomas Jefferson Rodman, aimed to overcome the difficulties of casting large cannon and this led to the eventual production of 286 massive 15" cannons. Their sheer size and weight resulted in their use as fortress guns.

A superb and unique brass model on a wooden base and measuring 24" x 92 x 10 1/4" high ( 60cm x 23cm x 26cm).

Although labelled as being of 16" bore this is probably an error as 15" was more typical.

Handbuilt 1/35 Ten Paces - Not Eight! Murder in Stroud Diorama HB/031

Stroud in 1807 produced recruits for the Napoleonic War. Two officers, Heazle and Delmont, recruiting in the town argued over a ladies honour. A site on the edge of town was agreed to settle the dispute. One short paced and fired his gun before his colleague could turn to fire. The bullet passes through Delmont's back and, after being carried to his lodgings in a wheelbarrow, he died a few days later. Heazle was charged with murder but never brought to court. It was one of last duels in which a man was killed in Britain. Delmont is buried under a flat stone in St. Lawrence's churchyard - a few yards from the site that has taken his name.
