The first commissioned ironclad for the US Navy also participated in the first sea battle in 1862, as the Monitor was deployed to protect the Union’s wooden fleet from the Virginia. The rotating turret (does not rotate on model) is an innovation still in use today. This innovative design changed warfare forever. After the first clashes of ironclads took place during the American Civil War it became clear that the ironclad was the most powerful warship afloat. This museum quality and accurate replica is made of resin, metal and hand painted give you a detail remembrance of an important piece of history. Includes display stand.
