New kit preview

 I am releasing a new kit of the USS Monitor the first week of August at the IPMS Nats. 
The model is 1/96th scale, 22" long. It is all resin and white metal. Features a fully detailed gun turret suitable for cutaway display, and all the various items needed to build the model showing the ship at any point in its career. I spent about 40 hours building mine, and it was very easy. I did not run into any snags along the way, and all the parts fit very well. I finished it with Floquil Railroad colors "Weathered Black", then airbrushed Floquil "Engine Black" in streaks. The underside was done with Floquil "Red Oxide", and the whole thing was weathered by using pastel chalks, and sealed with Dullcote. It features a fully detailed gun turret for cutaway and has all the items you need to build it at any point in her life. The MSRP is $ 249.95. Hope you enjoy!
