    Any specific models/dates?

    This book by Franklin is comprehensive and clearly well researched.

    See his index (I could perhaps post scans of specific models) and also some examples of his illustrations (also has lots of other details ref construction, fittings, harness, limbers etc).

    Hi John

    Can't help with plans but totally recommend the book Neil shows

    Have you tried contacting the Artillery museum as well

    This sounds like a interesting project

    You might want to post in General Figure talk

    Is that the old David Greive 100mm Royal Horse Artillery figure? ;)

    First is from an Osprey book (drawing is 1864 but believed to be same as earlier models); others from Franklin.
