The USS Monitor was the Union's response to the Confederate ironclad ship, USS Virginia. Launched from the East River, New York in 1862, the Monitor was sailed down to Norfolk to meet the Virginia, which had been terrorizing the Union Navy along the coast. After a 2 day battle in which little was accomplished, the skirmish was considered a tactical draw, and both vessels went on their merry way. The Monitor its self was a revolutionary design. It featured numerous patentable inventions, and utilized a rotating tower, which contained two cannons. The Monitor represented the beginning of modern naval warfare for the union.
About this creation
Well, i wouldn't necessarily say i'm back, but I did finally get the urge to build my first moc in 5 months. It really irks me that I was unable to get a blank background as opposed to LDD's stock ocean background, which is AWFUL might i just say. Anywho, thank you for viewing and please leave some feedback. -Tyro
Sorry I didnt see this sooner, Ive mainly been doing only halo 4. I like it. Could be better with a white background, but it still would take a lot of added time to post.
Iorn clads are something I always wanted in minifigure scale lego on my shelf, along with a U boat.
