Bluejacket USS Perry

In 1843, the USS Perry was a sloop-of-war in the United States Navy. The ship was named after Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, a hero of the War of 1812. The USS Perry was launched in 1843 and served for several years in various roles for the U.S. Navy.

During its service, the USS Perry was involved in several operations and missions, including patrols in the Caribbean and South America to protect American interests and ensure safe maritime trade routes. The ship also participated in diplomatic missions, representing the United States in foreign ports and promoting diplomacy and goodwill with other nations.

The USS Perry was well-regarded for its speed and agility, making it an effective vessel for conducting patrols and reconnaissance missions. The ship’s presence in various regions helped to project American naval power and protect U.S. interests overseas.

Although specific details of the USS Perry’s service in 1843 are limited, it is clear that the ship played a vital role in the U.S. Navy’s efforts to promote U.S. maritime interests and support American diplomacy during the mid-19th century. The USS Perry’s namesake, Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, was known for his distinguished service and leadership during the War of 1812, and the ship named in his honor likely carried on that legacy of service and dedication to the United States Navy.

The Bluejacket USS Perry is a highly accurate kit with a carved basswood hull, photo-etched details, laser-cut parts, and more. Full plans and a 40 page instruction manual are, of course, included.
