Civil War Ship Models

10/5/2011 • Civil War Times

Retired engineer and naval officer Edward Parent of Hamilton, Mass., re-creates the metal behemoths of the North and the South in his collection of some 80 painstakingly detailed Civil War–era vessels. Carefully rendered to 1/240 scale and averaging 10 inches in length, Parent’s models help us envision the beasts in their glory days.
