This one is an odd bird with character and not just another pretty face. Can you identify the name of the ship, scale of model and name of manufacturer? Plucky Kiwi, S.A. Lawes, and Man About Town, Felix Bustelo, are ineligible to answer this one. Please post all answers to the message board. 

Bradford Chaucer hit the nail on the head. This is a Iron Shipwright 1:350 scale model of USS Monterey, Coastal Defense Monitor, which mounted two 12 inch and two 10 inch guns. Basically she was a smaller version of the USS Puritan. Since the photo-etch, instructions and resin parts are already done, the kit should be available..... well, about now.
