Arrow Ironclad CSS Virginia

Here is a design build I did for the Brooke 7" swivel mounted gun on the Front Casement of the CSS Virginia, I did the 3D design work in Sketchup 8 and then proceeded to make a cutaway of sorts with the Brooke mounted on the Gun Deck in it's swivel mount with the blocks and tackle. This cutaway also took in one Anchor bit and one of the Hawser holes. The front casement was 12 inches of rafter pine, then a 5" layer of pine , then a 4 inch layer of Oak, followed by two layers of Iron. 25" inches in all and then set to a 36 degree angle to help deflect the incoming cannonballs. This is all done in 1:32 scale. Fits nicely on 10" x 12" display.

This all came about because I am working on a full hull model of the Ironclad, and needed to test build some areas to verify the look.

The photos do not document the build. Just the result.

I love these cutaways. They allow one to show so much more detail that would normally be lost.
Excellent work.

Thanks Jeff, I thought it would help to be able to see the details, like Jim said, but the scale of 1:32 would be a tough build for the entire ship. I am always frustrated when building details that end up buried in the models. The Virginia is a good subject, not much known about details as it was not well documented in the rush to war.

Yes Zakopious, I feel the same way, but then again I have a biased view, however I do like designing these sectional looks, glad you liked it.
