RTS LEGITOR a single-turret seagoing monitor
a single-turret seagoing monitor modeled on the Passaic Class
About this creation

This vessel is a single-turret seagoing monitor
modeled on the Passaic Class.


The model is 3 1/4 feet long (1 meter)


Of course the "real" Texas Navy never had an ironclad or monitor. But, in my alternate history Texas Navy in LEGOs, I have John Ericsson leading the Naval Weapons Development, and that's how we have a monitor (err legitor) 15 years early!

The story behind the alternate history of my Texas Navy in LEGOs is here.
