A new build from yours truly. This will be slow to start off as I still have a long ways to go no my USS Columbus, but, I hope to have the hull planked on one side by April of 2018.



As you may know, during the civil war, the Pennsylvania, the Columbus, the United States and I believe a few smaller ships were burned to keep them from the Confederacy that was advancing on Norfolk Harbor where they were berthed. These builds are a sort of commemoration of that event.

I hope to have all of the ships burned modeled before I die. I then plan on donating them to the Museum at Norfolk if they will take them.

There are lots more bulkheads to make, hope I ordered enough plywood!
