BRIEF HISTORY

Launched on October 21, 1797, the USS Constitution has won every battle she's ever fought - over 40 of them! She earned her nickname Old Ironsides after a sailor saw a cannonball bounce off her hull. Resting in Boston Harbor, she's the oldest commissioned US warship. A major restoration between 1993-1997 prepared the frigate for her 200th anniversary and made her seaworthy. On July 21, 1997, the Constitution set sail from Marblehead Harbor and traveled 5 miles in one hour, to a point just one mile short of Halfway Rock.

 

At 5/32" = 1' 0” (1:76) scale, the Model Shipways U.S.S. Constitution cross-section model is relatively easy to build and still offers precise detail. This highly detailed kit features nearly 600 laser cut basswood parts, 144 cast Britannia metal parts, seven different types of rigging line, high quality wooden dowels for the mast and yards and four sheets of photo-etched brass details. Five sheets of plans and over 90 pages of step-by-step photo illustrated instructions are included.

 

The kit is designed by master model builder Ken Foran. When designing and building the model prototype, Ken marveled at the skills, ingenuity and challenges of the original ship builders who built “Old Ironsides” with none of the modern technology, tools and heavy equipment to do so. We think you will enjoy building this cross-section too!
