Except for the hardware and fittings, the Virginia is built entirely from 1/8" sheet balsa. First the hull is assembled and then the casemate is constructed on the hull. The batteries are accessible through hatches atop the casemate.
Begin construction with the hull. The hull shape on our model is not true to scale. The full-size Virginia had a deep hull (see section on the plans) which would be difficult to build and would require many pounds of ballast to float at the proper waterline. Our model performed well with the shallow hull and the flat bottom makes it easy to display because no stand is necessary.
