Prepared a 54mm (1:32) scale version of the Carolean 3-pdr cannon a while ago, including uploading to Shapeways. Doing so I noticed they added a new material called

Printed this gunner figure tonight. Took 4 hrs 40 minutes. The scale is 54mm (1:29), smaller then the previous 70mm (1:25) scale, still the result is  MUCH  better ... Odd, partly maybe cause I posed it a bit more standing up, not 45 degree as I done....

18in gauge on H0 tracks, making 1:27.7 scale. Reached a new (combined) fork beside cannons and wagons, still 18in gauge but this time on H0 16.5mm gauge. This is the Inglenook / diorama I intend to test and display my models on, which will be of the usual

Finished the limber this evening, by painting both cannon and limber in the true blue/yellow painting it should have. Above first picture shows another cannon from the same period, in this case a howitzer, taken this summer 2019 when my wife and I visited

I painted the body and wheels today plus a couple of powder kegs I had laying around since the 0 scale days. They was intended as wine barrels, but works as good for kegs in this scale. The frame was also not quite to my liking when I compared to the real

Napoleon was 169 cm long, or in mm  1.690. Since wargame figures are calculated from toe to eye, we need to take of about 10cm from the length to compensate for the upper half of the head. 1.590 / 28 makes a 28mm figure 1:56 scale ...
