The USS Constitution is a frigate of the United States Navy. She is the oldest still seaworthy ship of the world and the second oldest still in service at all. The nickname “Old Ironsides” goes back to the battle with the British frigate HMS Guerriere in 1812, because bullets of this ship are said to have bounced off the strong side walls of the Constitution.
Several victories of the Constitution against British warships in 1812 established the great national importance of the frigate for the United States.
After an extensive overhaul between 2007 and 2010, the USS Constitution now serves as a state ship for receptions and official occasions. The crew are active marine soldiers.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “USS Constitution”
This model is 100 % hand made and crafted with great precision.
Exotic woods, such as teak, mahogany, rosewood or mango are being used, which result in precious, decorative and exclusive models as an end product. The hull is being sanded down carefully after completion, and if required, painted with clear coating material.
Ornaments and embellishments (for example canons, bull’s-eyes, anchor, dials or wheels et cetera) are made out of brass, chrome and other high-quality metals.
The sails are either out of cloth or silk, the mast is made out of wood and the hemp rope is made out of solid lisle. Some of these ropes have special knots, which allow the ropes to be retightened at any time.
