"USS Constitution"
scgrand1
not having built too many ships, the Constitution was definitely a challenge for me. The main thing with shipbuilding I have found out is take your time. when all is said and done at the end I completed two constitutions. Will explain in the next Constitution review. A beautiful ship with a crew.

"Huge! A True Challenge"
jpgraft1
This kit is big! It is also extremely time consuming with all of the rigging. It took me nearly a year to complete, but was well worth the wait. This is definitely NOT for the beginner, let alone the intermediate builder. The details are actually quite good and with some weathering, it will be stunning when completed.

 
"Excellent detail, but with a few problems."
tmbrwolf39
I built the 1/96 scale USS Constitution. wonderfully detailed and a lot of fun! definitely NOT for beginners, nor for even experienced younger model builders due to the very intricate details. However, there is ONE problem you should be aware. In the first instruction manual (the first is the build, the second is all rigging) the instructions inform you that if you wish to depict the ship with full sails, then the yard arms on the masts should be in the angled position according to the picture (pages 36, 38 and 40). DO NOT DO THIS.....PLACE THEM SQUARE TO THE BOW AND STRAIGHT!!!!! With the yard arms at the angle, not only will the ratlines NOT fit, but none of the rigging will align properly. I found out the hard way and had to cut the yard arms off and reset them. Other than that, it is a wonderful model, and worth the challenge.

 
"hard, but fun to do"
lamaire
This was the biggest model I've ever built. It's not easy.and took me about 8 months, but was worth the effort. The rigging was the hardest part. Some of the rigging instructions were difficult to understand, and almost impossible to do. After a while I pretty much gave up on the directions and just made it up as I went along. It came out very nice and is nice to display. I tried to paint it a close to the original ship as possible especially the weathered hull. There are many pictures of the real one online to use as a guide. If you have the time and patience I recommend it.

Comments

  • Keep from small children. Kit contains small parts which may cause swallowing in infants.
  • Can be rigged with or without sails.
