These are pictures of my just completed Iron Shipwright (ISW) 1/350 scale model of the monitor, USS Monterey. The kit was built pretty much out of the box, except that the resin 10 and 12-inch gun barrels were replaced with turned brass barrels. The mast and boom assembly was replaced with soldered together brass rod parts. The boat davits were replaced with brass rod parts and the anchors were fabricated from brass rod. All of the soldered assemblies were fabricated using resistance.
