    For a school project, a friend's son needs to put together some diorama depicting something from the Civil War, and I was wondering if anyone knew of any free downloadable models of Civil War ironclads or other ships of that era -- or any other card model of some Civil War subject.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    and I also have about 16 other paper boats to build. The used section has this book for a whopping $0.40. add $3.49 for delivery. I already have 2. one to cut up, one to save.
