CSS Alabama and USS Kearsarge in 1/600

 Monday saw a little more progress on my expanding ACW fleet.  I completed assembling the CSS Alabama (on the left, USS Kearsarge on the right).  The model of the Alabama is also from Thoroughbred Miniatures and was a bit of a challenge to build.


 Next are two shots of the Alabama by itself.  It's a nice looking model.  Hopefully the heat wave will break so I can prime these guys up for painting!

Great looking pieces of kit.

Very nice indeed!

My favourite ship of that war is the CSS Shenandoah, who visited my home town and is a rare Australian link to the American Civil War:

Thanks for the complements

Each ship model is about 6 inches long (to the tip of the bowsprit)

Outstanding! I'm a few steps behind on Kearsarge. I'll probably post after visiting WBC this week.
