Our Price $GONE
In July of 1861, the Confederate Navy began converting the partly-burned hull of the captured Union wooden steam frigate MERRIMACK to an Ironclad.
Rechristened the CSS VIRGINIA, she set forth in March, 1862 to do battle against the blockading U.S. Navy fleet, eventually meeting her match, THE MONITOR.
Designed and built by John Ericsson, the USS MONITOR became the model for an entire class of 60 gunboats, now known generically as "monitors".
Her uniquely hull, presenting a small target, was sheathed in 1" thick iron plate. The rotating gun turret permitted firing in all directions while underway.
This is a
great kit for school projects it's very sought after for history classes that
are studying the American Civil War.
The paint is included in the kit to build the scene as you see on the box. Glue 1.00 extra.
Okay model builders is this an actual color Civil War photo or?
|This is an Ironclad built by Howell Upchurch of Georgia.|
