The ironclad was the CSS Virginia. The Merrimack was a US frigate. Nice model by the way.

That's very cool. My wife is descended from one of the VIRGINIA'S Crew (a Tarheel CSA artillerist seconded to the CSN as a landsman gunner) – This will a nice gaming piece for the Mantle with the Missus blessings!

It's been commonly called both, back in that region, and the battle has historically been known as the Merrimack vs. the Monitor for at least about 50 years (which I can assert to first-hand), if not 150+.

How big is it ? it's about 1:60 scale (28mm), it's going to be very big.

I have a "Pook Turret" at 1:100 scale (15mm) and it's a good 280mm long.
