How to order your Model Cannon

Making an investment

By ordering one of Palmer's Armoury's masterpieces you will be joining a discerning group of individuals around the world who can proudly say they own a Palmer's Armoury original.

As with any piece of fine art, you have made an investment in your future and should, therefore, look after it accordingly.

Each handcrafted model is one of a limited edition (see your particular model for details) and is accompanied by a certificate featuring historical information and its authenticity.


Limited edition, registered and certified

As the scale models are part of a limited edition, a stylish brass plaque supplying details and the number of the gun is attached to the base.   A register is kept of each model together with the name of its purchaser and its destination.


Commission & Timing

Due to the extended length of time it takes to craft each model, we work mainly on commissions.

It is important to note that a 50% deposit is required to secure your order and balance of payment must be received prior to dispatching the replica.

A model can take anywhere from 12 - 16 weeks to produce and then 7 - 14 days to ship so be sure to order in time if it is for a special occasion.



We will forward bi-weekly progress reports to you on your cannon, although you are welcome to make contact with us at any time for an update.



Electronic transfer / Swift / CFC Account

Display and packaging 

Each model is displayed to perfection on a granite or wooden base. Dimensions for a glass case will be included.  Packaged in a wooden box, each cannon is shipped with its historical information.

It is important to note that the granite bases are incredibly heavy to export and if you are an international client, we suggest that you  consider ordering the base in your country.  We will supply the dimensions and the discount on the sales price will be R 500.  We will finalise each case on merit.
