Wooden Ship Kits

U.S.F. Constitution 1789Kit


Launched in 1789 the U.S.F. Constitution won every battle she ever fought. 40 engagements in all! She earned the nickname "Old Iron Sides" after one of her sailors saw a cannon ball bounce off her hull during a skirmish. Resting in Boston Harbor, she is the oldest actively commissioned ship in the world.

Model Ship Ways #184-315-8 Plank on frame construction.
After seven years of painstaking research and development, Model Shipways is proud to introduce their kit of the USF Constitution available. Our kit is based on the 1927 Navy drawings, photographs and documentation used during the 1993-97 restoration. Plank-on-frame construction features laser cut wooden parts. High quality basswood planking strips cover the hull and we include self adhesive copper tape for hull plating. True-to-scale Britannia metal, brass and hardwood fittings and 16 photo-etched brass sheets provide life-like detail. Over 50 cannon, carronade and gun barrels duplicate original armament. Some of Model Shipways' extra touches include laser cut gratings and engraved scrollwork. Four-hundred yards of rigging line in six diameters are also supplied.
