Details

CSS Virginia II, an ironclad ram, was laid down at the William Graves' shipyard at Richmond, Virginia in 1862. Acting Constructor William A. Graves, CSN superintended her construction, but in order to conserve scarce metal, shortened the casemate over the design called for in the original John L. Porter plans. The armor-plating was 6" thick on the forward face and 5" on the sides and after face.

The Virginia II was named after the more famous Confederate ironclad, the CSS Virginia, more popularly known as the Merrimac. In fact, the original Virginia's success caused "gunboat associations to emerge around the South, mainly driven by women, and their efforts helped with the construction of the Virginia II

Kit Details: 1/250 scale, 119 parts on four cards. Display stand Optional parts for boats, anchors, davits, other deck furniture. Contains hull/casemate parts to build as "new" or "weathered". Historical notes and construction tips.
