I started this model in 1999. It sat for something like 8 years before I got back to it. I've been working on it regularly, if not steadily since 2008.
On July 10th, 2011 it sailed on it's own for the first time.

Lots of photos, notes, history, etc are on the site for the model at: http://todd.mainecav.org/model/constellation/

Square rigged and radio controlled; too cool for school!

Constellation's been a little neglected as I built two other hulls; the 1:36 scale British frigate Macedonian of 1812 and the 1:20 scale Baltimore Clipper schooner Pride of Baltimore of 1981.

But recently the ship's launch was built and more work done on her 1st cutter, and the stern was given windows and decorations and really look much more "finished" now.

File comment: Stern decorations made and cast in resin. Each is slightly over 1 inch in diameter.
