Italian Monitor unveiled!

Peter Fulgoney has posted pic of the wonderful 1:700 scale Regia Marina monior 'Faa di Bruno' in its WW1 configuration.
A concrete reinforced sunken buildng, it sports a whopping 15inch gun turret! Designed by drunken Italian naval architects, it sprints at a bone jarring 3 kts and it likely to be swept away in any king tide!

The Steel Navy site is a great place to spend an hour or two, particulalry with G&T in hand!
