Cutty Sark scale model ship. Handcrafted by our master ship craftsman. Made with careful detail, our display ships are historically accurate and fully assembled.

SS Virginia was the first steam-powered ironclad warship built by the Confederate States Navy during the first year of the American Civil War; she was constructed as a casemate ironclad using the raised and cut down original lower hull and engines of the scuttled steam frigate USS Merrimack. Virginia was one of the participants in the Battle of Hampton Roads, opposing the Union's USS Monitor in March 1862. The battle is chiefly significant in naval history as the first battle between ironclads.

NOTE: Simple assembly is required once you receive your model of the CSS Virginia. First take the smoke stack and twist it in to the predrilled hole on the top center of the model. Next, take both lifeboats and set them on davits which hold them in place on each side. The metal chains can then be attached at the top of the smokestack. Once this is done you can insert the anchors into the predrilled holes toward the bow of the ship. Finally, take both flags and insert them into the two predrilled holes on either side of the smokestack.
