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 a national landmark and is currently docked in Boston.This Is museum-quality, fully assembled edition of the famous USS constitution "old ironside". It is part of an exclusive edition where the hull is laser cut with a unique serial number. The model is 100% hand built from scratch using "plank on frame" construction method. Our master craftsmen have spent more than 100 hours to finish it. One bold feature that makes this model standout is the art of wood use.

This replicas magnificent details include metal anchors and cannons, authentic crows nest, advanced intricate rigging, rolled sails, wood inlay hull, inlay deck, an ornate stern and many more.

This ship is big and beautiful .The detail and finish are both superb and it sits with great distinction in my study. As for the packaging and delivery, it was wrapped and anchored down very firmly in a strong crate and it arrived without any damage whatsoever. Nicely done OC Commerce!
Not only is this ship beautifully constructed and detailed, the process of placing the order through its delivery was flawless. The packing was so incredibly secure that there was nothing that needed repair before displaying it for all to see. Most highly recommend!
