New additions to the Union fleet - the three famous timberclads U.S.S. Lexington (foreground) and the U.S.S Tyler and U.S.S. Conestega
The trio of the U.S.S.Lexington, U.S.S, Tyler and U.S.S. Conestega are now finished and have joined the ranks of the Union fleet. I rather like these and for any ACW river based set up they are pretty much indispensable. All three had very active careers and I hope that they will continue in this spirit when I get to use them!
The next batch is of a further five side wheel paddle steamers and things start to get interesting as the final two batches will feature some small gunboats and a number of ocean going types.
It is getting there for sure!
