The completed gun and carriage.
Glenn recently completed a 1:6 model gun similar to those carried on the 17th century French ship La Belle. The reconstruction of the gun carriages is based on a gun carriage found on La Belle, while the gun itself is based on archaeological information from Curtis Tunnell's report on a group of cannon buried at La Salle's colony of Fort St. Louis.
