Dark Ops sells a new US civil war ship in 28mm, this time it's an Ironclad, the USS Union.

Although nice shipping to the US is expensive.

I've ordered DarkOps other Ironclads before, and I found the combo of reasonably low product price + shipping to the US to still be a good value. This model has much more detail than Sarissa's casemate. So while Sarissa gives a discounted shipping rate, this one is still a very good value for what you get.

I may well get this in the future, after building ships on hand.

miniMo, you might be correct. For this ship which costs £34.00 GBP it will only cost £17.00 GBP to have it shipped over.

And last purchase I got both of their other Ironclads, and another terrain piece, the shipping was stil a flatl £17.00 GBP

Which means that purchase of yours fell within the threshold to be that flat rate. But if you only want one item you would still pay the same shipping cost.

Sorry to throw a wrench in the gears, but the USS Union was a large screw steamer with one rifled gun and looked nothing like what you are calling the USS Union. The boat in your picture is more representational of an Eads class gunboat that operated along the Mississippi River and its tributaries.
