Monitor (BJ-K1035) Length 10-3/4″ / Scale 1/16″=1′

Designed and built by John Ericsson, the U.S.S. MONITOR became the model for an entire class of 60 gunboats, now know generically as “monitors.” Her unique low hull, presenting a small target, was sheathed in 1″ iron plate. The rotating gun turret permitted firing in all directions while underway.

BlueJacket’s kit contains detailed comprehensive instructions, accurate plans, a pre-carved hull of basswood, a history of the vessel, etched brass and cast fittings, plus all the wood required to complete the model.
