Here's number four in my obsession. I painted it as a bronze cast gun would have appeared in Royal Naval service. Strictly out of the box with the exception of closing in the backs of the wheels, which you can't see anyway, and adding a "bore" to the gun rather than the open maw the kit has.

 Actually, until better ways of casting iron were developed, bronze was the preferred medium. It cast at a lower temperature, was easier to work with, and did not rust/corrode when at sea.
