Nice to see you corrected the first try, it was too sketchy (sorry for the delay due to a big week-end).
Wheels are still too bulky IMHO and the pair at the front could be more detailed (see inpirations pics below)

You erased the small ladder on the side which is not a good idea for me.
And finally, some textures could be nice on the top cover (believe to be a wooden structure covered with oil cloth) and body of the wagon

The whole wagon looks a bit long and the top cover looks high also, on the source image it's more low as it should be a cover (opening as a trunk) and not a massive chariot
Something like this (which is a later french battery wagon close to the one you made for ACW)

This one is my little favorite, congratulations

The volée seems short as I already said in a previous post, its longer in order not to damage the walls of the fortification
The small roof for the vent cover has to be removable, it's just there to prevent rain to get in the guntube.
and it is a little bit lower on the gun thanks t its shape

Great info Chris, we're changing the hood and barrel. Not sure if anything will change with that wagon, maybe ends up in trash can, chose wrong sculptor, and it seems HaT already produce a wagon like that.

In 2016 I visited the Ligny museum and took some pictures that might help you a bit:

I thought I remembered the Hat-wagon, but not being an expert I thought you were making something different. There will probably other nice projects to do. The ACW-range is really impressive, so we know what you are able to do!

Sad to read it, well yes Hat produce a baggage waggon but your quality is at a million years ahead of what Hat makes with its plastic... And I like the fact that if I need 25 waggons, you could produce it, the "on demand" production is a great thing
But I understand you have to run a business

I've just received my first order from Speira...
I have to say I'm amazed by the quality, Can't wait to make another order with what's plan to be released

Glad you like the models Chris, well the wagon could be saved, I'm sure we will look into it soon.

When can we expect more Napoleonic figures from Speira? i love the British soldier but he seems rather lonely!
