Scale: 1:5. A working model of a forward pivot mounting. The gun itself has been roughly formed from wood to give an indication of its position on the mounting. The training and mounting mechanism are made in brass. Both the elevation of the gun and its training can be operated by turning two hand wheels; the right-hand wheel for elevation and the left-hand wheel for the training. The carriage, which is made from steel, is mounted on a substantial oak baseboard on which is fixed a plaque inscribed: "Sir W. G. Armstrong Whitworth & Co Ltd Manchester Forward pivot carriage for 4.72 Bl guns Naval service scale 1/5."
