Old Modern Handicrafts Constitution Copper Bottom E.E Model Ship

The U.S.S. Constitution, a three-mast frigate, is the world's oldest commissioned warship. Built primarily with dense southern live oak, its hull was 21 inches thick in an era when 18 inches was common. Paul Revere forged the copper spikes and bolts that held the planks in place. The 204-foot-long ship was first put to sea in 1798 and its most famous era of naval warfare was the War of 1812 against Britain, when it captured numerous merchant ships and defeated five warships, including the H.M.S. Guerriere. It was during the ferocious battle with the Guerriere that British seamen, astonished at how their cannonballs were bouncing off the Constitution's hull, cried out, ''Sir, Her sides are made from Iron!'' Hence, the nickname, ''Old Ironsides.''The Constitution today is national landmark and is docked in Boston.

A truly beautiful model.

A. Joe Hiller from Lexington, KY

The ship was delivered by FedEx to my door, packed in a sturdy cardboard box, surrounding a lattice wooden boxwork frame, completely protecting the model. The hull was supported by a molded foam plastic base with a few inserts to protect forward and backward movement. There ws no visible damage to box or contents. A screwdriver (used to get under wire brads, pliars (to pull them out, and a small hammer was use to unpack, taking about 45 minutes.

The ship needed the rigging tightened, using the working fittings on the ropes. Looking at the ship and compring my pictures that I have made on previous visits to the real ship, I detected no large deviation from the rigging or sails, except for some differences in rigging diameters, when compared with the pictures. There is enough color variation in the model rigging to easily make out the setup.

The only real detraction that I found is on the copper plating of the hull. The builder covered the plates with a fiberglass mesh and locked it in place with epoxy coating. The color is not changed, but the mesh is a bit distracting. From a standoff distance of 5 ft., it is not noticed. All in all a very satisfying, almost museum quality model, As a long time ship model builder, I would have much more money, not to count time invested in this model, I recommend it highly.

Amazing Ship Model

A Wife from USA– Top 500 Reviewer

My husband has worked very hard his whole life. He was a career Naval Officer and is now a business executive. He doesn't ask for much but this ship model caught his eye a year ago and he mentioned it on several occasions. I decided to surprise him with it for a birthday gift. He was stunned when it arrived. It is truly a work of art and I am delighted with the quality of workmanship.
