CTS 24 Pound Howitzer

I'm not sure what the toy makers were using as their model when designing this 24 pound howitzer but I've been scouring the Web looking for a photo of a 24 pound howitzer that has such a flared muzzle and simply can't find one. Yes, the real ones did appear to have a flared muzzle end but not to the extent seen on this toy making the toy look almost like a caricature. In any case it's still a nicely done piece and a great addition tou your Civil War artillery battery, and like the Napoleon 12-pdr featured yesterday, comes complete with two separate tools. CTS also produces a 3" rifled ordinance cannon which I don't yet have but hope to get before too long. Until then - Enjoy!
