I just posted these --- while the carriages don't fit, each box comes with four barrels (two long, two short), meaning you can build or supply your own carriages for them --- or cut them and stick them to the side of your ship for batteries below deck.



^Also, barrels, spare cannon balls, loading rods, etc.  A good general purpose box for outfitting a ship.

Just received my Ainsty cannon. Very nice castings and detailed models. They were a little small for my oversized ship (I think I will go to Thomarillion for that) but lovely nonetheless. Here are the measurements and a comparison picture with a Foundry pirate:

Length of cannon 30mm
Length of cannon + carriage 34-35mm
Height 15mm (highest point)
Width of carriage + wheels 21mm

The cheapest soruce of 28mm cannon I know is Irregular. You'll find them under their pirate range:

I have quite a few of their 9pdrs. Very nice.

Grubby Tanks has the old Britania Miniatures range. It has lots of naval 'bits' Guns, anchors, figureheads etc. Worth a look,
also he is a nice guy.
