Model[edit]

IIRC, the Smithsonian Institution had a 1/48 (or 1/32, it seemed fairly large in size) scale model on display at the National Museum of American History for a long time. It's been a while since my last visit so I can't say if it's still on display.--Phyllis1753 (talk) 16:12, 17 March 2009 (UTC)

Fate?[edit]

Just a thought, but after WWI what happened to these guns used in France?

Were they shipped back to the US, sold off or were they scrapped?

Did any of these guns end up in coastal service? Like the MKIIs. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.162.194.65 (talk) 16:36, 17 March 2009 (UTC)
