Britains American Revolution cannon

 I had this as a kid. All I have left is one figure and the barrel. This photo is from web. I think it was early 70s. See the others in the range here

A Call to Arms 1/32 American Revolution Maryland infantry


Found these figures today. They are a bit dusty but I thought I would post them as they are good figures. British made. Looks like one of the poses I didn't paint. You get 4 poses and they are pretty cheap.
