We are a little more serious than hobby but would like to tap you all as a resourse. I noticed someone had done a model of the CSS Charleston. We are a theming business and we are in the middle of building a full size model of the WaterWitch, a steam powered sailing ship, for the Port Columbus Civil War Museum in Columbus GA. They have a web camera set up so you can watch the progress. To put the size in prospective, the water wheels are 18 feet in diameter and the steam pipe 63 feet tall from the ground. We are possibly going to build two ironclads for another museum that will float, also full size (but made of fiberglass not wood and iron). One is the CSS Charleston and the other the USS (?)Passaic. It is really tough finding information on what they looked like inside and outside and I really appreciated the heads up on "Charleston's Maritime History" as a source. If anyone knows of any other resourse books available out there, I would appreciate the help.
