U.S.S. Constitution “Old Ironsides”, wooden ship model kit by BlueJackeet, K1018
An American National Treasure
Our kit presents the “Connie” as she appeared during her most glorious years, 1812-1815. Her accuracy is based upon three years of painstaking research by Larry Arnot, reading deck logs and maintenance records. As an attestation to her authenticity, our kit has been named “The Official Kit of the U.S.S. Constitution Museum.” It contains over 2600 fittings, 20 different sizes of scaled rigging cord, much photo etched brass, and resin deck boats. The carved basswood hull is solid to the gundeck, which leaves two decks to fit out. Some spar deck planking may be left off, so the interior will be open to view. This is a kit for the expert modeler who is looking for a challenge and the opportunity to make history come to life. Optional copperplates available for additional realism.
