The Monitor and the Merrimack



Here are models I built of the two ironclads who dueled on March 9, 1862, and changed naval warfare forever. I hope I don't have to tell you which is which.

I saw pieces of the Monitor not long ago in Newport News, VA. Very cool stuff.

Newport News was one of my many old stomping grounds.
