Here's a 1:36 scale working model in progress
It's 62 inches long on deck and will be of the ship as she appeared during her first cruise in 1856 and will operate and sail under radio control.

Chugging along on a 1:36th scale working RC model. Still a ways to go, but it looks like something now.

Constellation, after 7 weeks in dry dock was returned to her berth on March 21st, 2011.
