The MONITOR has recently been the subject of numerous news articles and TV documentaries. Her remains were found off Cape Hatteras and a major expedition was formed to recover and preserve her engine and other artifacts. MONITOR had a unique low hull, sheathed in 1" iron plate, which presented a small target. The rotating gun turret permitted firing in all directions while underway. This is a model suitable for the less experienced modeler. It contains a pre-carved basswood hull, etched brass, Britannia fittings, and everything else necessary to successfully complete your own piece of history.
