Model Shipways USS Constitution Cross-Section 1797 Wood Model. Welcome to what is arguably the most detailed model kit of the USS Constitution ever produced. This version of the kit represents the latest restoration of Old Ironsides now berthed in Boston Harbor. Our kit is entirely built with 5mm bulkhead and false keel plywood framework, then planked in basswood; the modeler's choice of fine-grained hardwood.Fittings are made of cast Brittania metal (lead-free), photo-etched parts, brass strips, brass belaying pins, and walnut blocks, and dead eyes. Rigging is jewelry quality, non-stretch nylon made in Germany and is provided in both light brown and black in 6 sizes to represent scale running and standing rigging. Plans and 96 pages of detailed step by step instructions take you from what appears to be a challenging build to a legacy-satisfying monument to your passion for building beautiful, historically accurate models. A perfect, same scale complement to our MS2040 USS Constitution kit in the scale of 1:76. Scale - 5//32 = 1ft.
