Here are a matched pair of 1/4 scale field carriages I did for someone with a pair of 1/4 scale six pounders. I don't have the barrels.
With precise measurements, I don't need them.
I hope they fit. :shock:
There is a lot of work here.

What attention to detail! Never cease to be amazed at your work.

You may have said before but I forget - do you do the wheels as well?

Also, do you have a forge for doing all the iron work? Gas/propane or traditional coal/coke?

Dennis,
I buy the wheels from a company called Custom Wagon & Wheels. They costs $350 a pair and there is no way I could make them for that.

I use a propane horseshoe forge and an acetylene torch to shape all my metal work.
