“Old Ironsides” The US Navy’s Oldest Commissioned Ship!
To keep with my “building the ships I’ve visit”, I’m presenting my “Old Ironsides”, Mamoli, 1:93 scale, USS Constitution, cross section kit. Constructed and rigged mostly per the plans but I did add furled sails, hammocks and US and First Navy Jack flags. I built the case to include a mirror in the back to add some depth to the display. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting the oldest US commissioned warship twice and plan to get back there again in the near future. Hope you enjoy.
