Hi to all
Can anyone help with measurement details of the Vickers single barrel qf 2pounder pom pom gun.This gun may have been covered in drawings by the late
N.A.Ough in a series in Model Boats circa.1969.Any help would be gratefully received.JEEP

Hi Kevin
I,m not sure what mark they were,they had flash cones on the barrel ends and were mounted in single tubs. I'm building a model of the paddle steamer Thames Queen ,my father served on her during the last WW.
I'm also trying to get measurements for the 2in.No2 Mk1 rocket launcher which was also mounted on this ship,I have various photos of both weapons but lacking precise measurements.
Thanks for the reply.

Have you tried John Lambert.  He has weapon drawings.

Hi Gordon,
Phil´s right, John Lambert has probably the largest selection of naval weapons. His drawings L/O/04 (2pdr single) and L/O/48 (among many things, the 2" rocket projector) may be just what you are looking for. If you have difficulty in identifying the pom pom mark you can always contact him and send him a copy of the actual photo you are using, and he will know.
Best of luck!

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
