1:200 USS Dunderberg

  The USS Dunderberg, which is a Swedish word meaning "thunder mountain," was an ocean-going casemate ironclad of 14 guns. She resembled an enlarged, two-masted version of the Confederatecasemate ironclad CSS Virginia. She was originally designed to have both gun turrets and a casemate but the turrets were deleted while the ship was still building. Construction began in 1862, but progress was slow and she was not launched until after the end of the American Civil War in 1865.

  The ship was not accepted by the Union Navy so its builder began seeking buyers elsewhere; Otto von Bismarck expressed some interest, and the thought of Prussia armed with such a vessel prompted France to purchase her and commission her in 1867 with the name Rochambeau. She was initially placed in reserve, but was mobilized in 1870 to participate in the Franco-Prussian War. The ship saw no action and wasdecommissioned after the end of the war. Rochambeau was stricken from the Navy List in 1872 and scrapped in 1874.
