Default BP Model of Civil War Dahlgren Gun on Marsilly Carriage $375 + Shipping

A nice starting point for creating a scale model of the 9" Dahlgren on a Marsilly carriage, which was a standard naval gun on both sides. Whoever made the barrel, took the Dahlgren "soda bottle" moniker literally, as the barrel goes out where it should go in. This can be fixed with a grinding wheel, or if you have a metal lathe that can swing this barrel, I am jealous! Steel barrel is 15" including the cascabel and is .70 caliber. The elaborate shape of the Marsilly carriage is faithfully reproduced. Axle is stamped "CSS VIRGINIA" (Confederate name for the ironclad "Merrimac") and there are remains of an old paper label. I charge actual shipping with no handling charge from CT 06281, or pick up.
