Gentlemen,

It has come to my attention that a few of the videos that I have created were posted as "private" on YouTube.
A vexing dilema to me, for sure. However the problem has been resolved.
My only hope is that you are not tired of them by this point.

Movies that I have created about this ship can be found here:

"Undefeated: The Story of Old Ironsides"
The first video I made. Designed to tease the completion of the model.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzsdscRK9pg

"One by One - The Story of the USS Constitution"
A historical dramatization (overly dramatic perhaps) of the impact the USS Constitution had on the formidable British Navy.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SIHTBzupxc

It Had to Be Built"
A video about the inspiration, and subsequent obsession, with the building of a model of the USS Constitution, and my plans to expand the experience online.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXLJca_jGH4

"Four Days Out"
A compilation using images of the completed ship taken by a professional photographer, which also portrays real people who have joined the crew through Isaac Hull's Facebook page.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcX-CaX4JDo

"The Life of a Super Model"
A documentation of the photo shoot itself… but with a fashion spin.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ykxlN0QlWKw

Thank you again,

Your humble servant, Isaac Hull

January 22, 1799

0800 - While in my quarters preparing for my duties, I heard a most pleasant sound coming from the deck. It was the sound of fife music.

But not a simple compositions usually heard during battle. The music I heard was a much more refined piece that I could not identify.

I proceed quickly to the main deck. It was a beautiful morning. Warm with light breezes. Most of the crew were working quietly. But some stood facing the bow, pleasantly entranced.

I followed the sound forward until I discovered our young fifer, Anastacia Buschmann, playing near the foremast fife rail. The piece she was playing was beautiful. Light, airy and very complex.

This was no fifer! This was a musician of great talent!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cL9z9uYlk3Q

Several officers joined me and listened intently. The Captain arrived, too. He smiled, and I could tell that the music seemed to ease his mind, being so troubled of late. A weight seemed to lift from his shoulders as he listened. The crewmen were quiet as well, refraining from their usual loud banter. Perhaps, civilized by the moment. Many faces were seen poking through the deck hatches and there was a lot of clamoring to get a better view.

I also happen to notice her father, Timothy Buschman (the Boatswain), listening from high above on the main mast fighting top. He had a very, proud look on his face.

In this capacity, the ship’s “musicks,” as the fifers and drummers are typically referred to, are expected to call the crew to dinner… and to battle stations. Above the deafening roar and confusion of battle, the sounds of the fife and drum convey orders to the sailors. The unpredictable nature of life aboard a war ship means that she must be prepared to play at any moment’s notice.

But in this moment she was at peace, happily playing this beautiful melody. No doubt seeking the challenge of a more difficult composition than what she is expected to play during battle. When she was finished, I spoke kindly to her about her talent. She was most humble and very gracious.

I later told her father of my appreciation of her great talent. He humbly agreed, but he quickly laughed and said with a smile that “Great musical talent runs in the family!” He then began to sing very loudly as he quickly climbed up into the shrouds and ascended to the highest elevation of the mainmast, out onto the royal yard arms. His booming voice was heard for most of the morning and into the late afternoon, until he finally stopped to notify the officers on deck, that there were dark clouds on the far horizon and a heavy squall was most likely in our future.

Very nice build of Constitution using the classic Revell 1/96 kit, fully detailed and improved.

Hopefully, we can persuade the modeler to post pics on this site as well.

Goodmorning,

do you still have the building plans of the USS United States in scale 1:150? I seem to have lost mine... :( and, if so, is there any way I can get them? :)
Thanks,

Since this thread has resurfaced, I thought I would post this photo as it's a new favorite of mine.

Awesome! Amazing how little the hull appears hogged in any of the photos.

Her last major reconstruction fixed a lot of those issues. The installation of her diagonal riders also helped. They're in her original plans but its unknown if they were ever actually installed as built in 1797. Now, if they'd only restore her to her War of 1812 appearance like the law actually requires (black and buff paint scheme, new stern and quarter galleries, figurehead, etc.), she'd be even more beautiful!

I believe that is what her current period of restoration is attempting to acheive.

Built an armed launch from the 32' boat in this kit, using one of the carronades.

Image

Centerline stowage are two crates and two barrels shaved from the deck of a R.E. Lee steamboat. Note that this is built in two subassemblies - the hull & mast, then the 'deck' with gun.
Image

Hard originally thought to use an oar as a rudder.
Image

Having primed both subassemblies, I'm now inclined to fit it with a dedicated oar
Image

Instead of a simple lanteen rig, I'm going for a reverse rig.
