Presented is a model that compares to the most expensive in everything except size. It captures the imagination of everyone who has ever wanted to own a full rigged ship, but didn't have the room to properly display it. Our new, miniature size version of the USS CONSTITUTION is just the right size for any place where space is at a premium, but where the atmosphere would be enhanced by a square rigged model of historic U.S. Navy significance.
 
This magnificent miniature has unbelievable detailing in a complicated vessel so small in size. The hull and standing and running rigging shows all the details of the original's construction including a copper clad bottom at no additional cost. Built to the same high standards as our larger models, she is true to the original which is still in service as our oldest commissioned warship. The detailing of the full compliment of cannons, and gun ports, all the spars, rigging, from Studding Sail booms, T'Gallant to Dolphin striker are correct to the tiniest detail possible in this size. To accomplish this, we combined Space Age construction with Old World craftsmanship achieving amazingly realistic results in this scale model which measurers only 19 1/2" L x 14 7/8" H x 2 1/2" W. The scale is 110:1.
 
CONSTITUTION is SHIPPED FULLY RIGGED AND ASSEMBLED AS SHOWN in a special Styrofoam pack
INCLUDING SHIPPING to the continental U.S.
 

 

 
With all the ship and boat models that are proliferating the internet in increasing numbers, all claiming to be of the highest museum quality, and best value, some words of caution. The amount you spend does not necessarily mean that the model you buy is worth it. The old adage, "you get what you pay for holds true in most instances". But it takes a trained eye to judge whether all these models truly measure up. This is a hard task to judge when you only have pictures to rely on, but a trained seaman's eye can tell the difference. We only sell those models that meet our own stringent requirements for accuracy and authenticity based on sixty years of boating and professional seagoing experience as a former holder of a U.S. Navy, "D" Qual, Senior Skipper, Oceans, and a licensed USCG Master, Unlimited Oceans, along with being a collector of fine models.

BRIEF HISTORY: Constitution was built at Edmund Hartt's shipyard in Boston, Massachusetts. The ship's design was unique for its time because of a diagonal cross-bracing of the ship's skeleton that contributed considerably to its strength. Paul Revere forged the copper spikes and bolts that held the planks in place and the copper sheathing that protected the hull. Constitution first put to sea 22 July 1798 and saw her first service patrolling the southeast coast of the United USS Constitution under sail in Massachusetts Bay, July 21, 1997 ALIGN=States during the Quasi-War with France. 
 
In 1803 Constitution was designated flagship for the Mediterranean Squadron under Captain Edward Preble and went to serve against the Barbary States of North Africa. Preble began an aggressive campaign against Tripoli, blockading ports and bombarding fortifications. Finally Tripoli, Tunisia, and Algeria agreed to a peace treaty.
 
Constitution patrolled the North African coast for two years after the war ended, commanded by Stephen Decatur and two other captains to enforce the terms of the treaty.

She returned to Boston in 1807 for  refitting. The ship was recommissioned as flagship of the North Atlantic Squadron in 1809 under Commodore John Rodgers.

By early 1812, relations with the United Kingdom had deteriorated and war was declared on 20 June. Captain Isaac Hull, who had been appointed Constitution's commanding officer in 1810, put to sea 12 July, without orders, to prevent being blockaded in port. His intention was to join the five ships of Rodgers' squadron.

One month later on August 19, she met with the frigate, HMS Guerriere off the coast of Nova Scotia. The British ship fired the first shot of the battle; 20 minutes later, Guerriere was a dismasted hulk, so badly damaged that she was not worth towing to port. Hull had used his heavier broadsides and his ship's superior sailing ability, while the British, to their astonishment, saw that their shot seemed to rebound harmlessly off Constitution's strong live oak hull—giving her the nickname "Old Ironsides".
 
Under the command of William Bainbridge, "Old Ironsides" met HMS Java, another British frigate, in December. Their three-hour engagement left Java unfit for repair, so she was burned.
 
Despite having to spend many months in port, either under repair or because of blockades, Constitution managed eight more captures under the command of Charles Stewart. She returned to port in 1815 to find the war had ended. After six years of extensive repairs, she returned to duty as flagship of the Mediterranean Squadron. She sailed back to Boston in 1828.

An examination in 1830 found her unfit for sea. Congress passed an appropriation for reconstruction and in 1835 she was placed back in commission. She served as flagship in the Mediterranean and the South Pacific and made a 30-month voyage around the world beginning in March 1844.
 
In the 1850s she patrolled the African coast in search of slavers, and during the American Civil War served as a training ship for midshipmen. But Constitution, along with all ships of her type, was becoming rapidly obsolete as a fighting vessel. As early as 1838, steamships had begun to make regular transatlantic crossings (see steamboat) and the Civil War's Battle of Hampton Roads had shown the impotence of wooden-hulled warships when faced with ships made of (or clad in) iron.
 
Even when restricted from front line duties, however, Constitution continued to serve the Navy and the country, and after another period of rebuilding in 1871, she transported goods for the Paris Exposition of 1877 and served once more as a training ship. Decommissioned in 1882, she was used as a receiving ship at Portsmouth, New Hampshire. She returned to Boston to celebrate her centennial in 1897.

In 1905, public sentiment saved her once more from scrapping. From 1920–23 she was renamed Old Constitution, to free her name for a new (but ultimately never-completed) battlecruiser. In 1925, once again bearing the name Constitution, she was restored through the donations of school children and patriotic groups. After being recommissioned on 1 July 1931, she set out under tow for a tour of 90 port cities along the Atlantic, Gulf and Pacific coasts of the United States.
 
In 1941, she was placed in permanent commission in Boston. An Act of Congress in 1954 made the Secretary of the Navy responsible for her upkeep.
 
From 1992–95, Constitution underwent a 44 month refit and overhaul that returned the ship to fully sailable condition.

Constitution renders a 21-gun salute to Fort Independence during her Independence Day turnaround cruise. On 21 July 1997, as part of her 200th birthday celebration, Constitution set sail for the first time in over a century. She was towed from her usual berth in Boston to Marblehead, then set six sails (jibs, topsails, and driver), then sailed unassisted for an hour and rendered a 21-gun salute.

The modern day role of "Old Ironsides" is that of "ship of state". USS Constitution is today considered the most famous vessel in American naval history. The crew of 55 modern-day sailors participates in ceremonies, educational programs and special events while keeping the ship open to visitors year-round and providing free tours. Constitution is the oldest fully commissioned vessel afloat. Although the HMS Victory holds the honor of being the oldest commissioned warship by three decades, she is permanently drydocked out of water.
 
Constitution is one of only two presently commissioned ships of any type in the US Navy known to have sunk an enemy vessel. The crew are all active-duty Sailors and the assignment is considered special duty in the Navy. Traditionally, the duty of captain of the vessel is assigned to an active duty Navy commander.
 
The USS Constitution is one of the sites along the Freedom Trail and is part of Boston National Historical Park, better known as the Charlestown Navy Yard. She is open to the public.
