Here's a pretty decent pic that gives a lil more detail.



Naval carriages are designed and constructed according to a forumla set forth by the diameter of the bore of the cannon. 2" bore is 2" cheeks. 8" bore should have 8" cheeks. Wheels should be 4 times the bore for the front wheels and 3-1/2 times the bore for the rear wheels.

It's all in how pc you want it to be. You're the only one it has to please. I'm planning a mountain howitzer myself but it won't be pc. It should look pretty close for the uninitiated tho.

Historically correct or not, it is very cool.
