I thought I'd pass this out in case anyone has any useful reference material to hand, we're looking for scale plans or useful drawings of the artillery pieces for the Indian Mutiny range.  The pieces we're looking to get modelled are:

6lb field gun – same carriage
9lb field gun – same carriage
24lb howitzer – same carriage
12lb howitzer
8” siege mortar
18lb siege gun
Limber

We've found some nice drawings but a lot of the time it's hard to get an idea of the sizing unless there's someone stood right next to it.

Probably the best bet is to contact the Royal Artillery Museum, now at Larkhill in Wiltshire. When I did a search for the museum, the link to their old website had a line about the Artillery of the Honourable East India Company. Hope this helps?

Powys Castle has a fair few that Clive of India collected, but they’re a bit earlier...

Is it time I had a signature? Everyone else does.

I forgot to say thanks for this, I sent them an email so just waiting to hear back.
