Is there anyone that makes the proper scale skids and carriages for their cannons and mortars? I don't have proper tools or skills, and I would like to get a slightly elongated skid for one of their smaller mortar barrels to use as a gift for my grandson who wants to be a mortar-man in the Marine Corps. I want to have a brass plaque cut to fit in front of the the mounting with a 2 line engraving, ie
U.S. Marine Corp
9 Nov 2007
So I would need probably an extra inch forward of the barrel, or alternatively, an extra 1 1/2 inches thickness to permit the plaque to be placed on the side. I have an idea how I would like it to look, but I have little experience in this area, and I would like it to be ready as a Christmas gift.
Something that would be fit to be displayed on a Marines desk.

thanks in advance

Do you have a mortar barrel yet? What style are you considering?

I do have a .22 brass mortar barrel from Brooks, but the length forward of the tube on the one that I have is not deep enough to mount any kind of plaque. I really wanted the barrel to be behind the plaque, although I am thinking the dogtag idea would work out pretty well, thanks for that idea Victor3. I may just run down to the local PX and see if they have something like that there.
