"Hello,  I have done as much diligence as I can bear on finding the best quality model ship makers and am about to submit an order to you for your USS Constitution model. Can you explain what the 110V light feature is, please?  Is this something that you connect in some way to the model? I could not find a description of this on your website, apologies if it is there and I missed it. Also, have you ever considered a model of HMS Warrior? Thanks! Gareth H. Ph. D."

The photos below are of the 64" model. 
Action figures are for this size only.


USS Constitution was never defeated in battle.  In 1815, she engaged and captured two British men-of-war Cyane and Levant at the same time.   In 1812, during ferocious the battle with HMS Guerriere, the seamen, astonished at how the British cannonballs were bouncing off the Constitution's hull, cried out - "Huzzah! Her sides are made of iron!"  Hence, her nickname, "Old Ironsides."

Old Ironsides’ planks were up to seven inches thick.  The ship's design was unique for its time because of a diagonal cross-bracing of the ship's skeleton that contributed considerably to the ship's structural strength. 

With an acre of sail and a slim underbody, Constitution had a remarkable top speed of 14 knots.  This made her faster than any ships of the line and frigates.

In 1844, USS Constitution became the first American ship to circumnavigate the globe.  She is now world’s oldest commissioned warship still afloat.


This USS Constitution ship model features:

  • Accurate beautiful stern gallery exactly like that of the Constitution now.  No other models in the market has this accuracy. 

  • Authentic rigging.  Not a single thing is omitted, regardless of how difficult it is to make.   This superior rigging is one of Model Ship Master's features that no other commercial builders can even hope to match. 

  • Weathered old-looking thin sails.

  • Hammock nets that sailor used to put their blankets in for extra protection during battle.  This feature is still on the real ship today.

  • Full number of boats (seven of them.)

  • Blackened metal cannons and wooden carriage.

  • Copper-plated bottom: individual copper pieces are weathered unevenly to create a realistic look.

  • Double plank-on-frame.

  • All parts are wooden or metal

  • Beautiful solid wooden base.

Both ships have sailed in, docked, and seem happy in their new home port.

The shipping was a little entertaining on the delivery, but worked out well, in the end. So I have been studying each of the models now for an hour or so, instead of working, but, hey. What two great distractions these are.

Some feedback on each:

USS CONSTITUTION: The level of and execution of the detailing are outstanding. Period. I did a lot of research on this particular model, and I found no other model that compares to it. Period. The rigging and the masts alone qualify this model as exceptional in its class. Add in everything else, and its a major player. Seeing it "in person" is more than convincing of its greatness. It exceeded my expectations.

SAN FELIPE: Here, the level of and execution of the detailing is stunning. The artisanship is simply fantastic and over-the-top. It competes "bow-to-bow" with any SF model on the market that I have seen and beats any of them, hand down. The model is WAY better than the photographs and GREATLY exceeded my expectations. I could go on and on about this model..... I love it.

SHIPPING: Packaging was A+! Well designed, straightforward, and very effective. And best, no damage.

SUGGESTIONS: Meant somewhat tongue-in-cheek: Frank, you need better photographs! The gap between what the photos convey and then what the models themselves convey is dramatic. That said, I'll tell you it is a wonderful experience to see something that is actually MUCH better looking than its photographs!

Would I purchase another of your models? Oh my God, yes! I am already trying to figure out which model I want next (likely HMS Victory).

So I'm now a huge fan.

Do not try to save a couple hundred dollars for a piece of nautical art that will proudly stay with you for decades to comes, and probably be passed down to the next generation.

In December 2007, Intel's IT general manager Malcolm Harkins presented this USS Constitution to Intel's CIO John "JJ" John in a special recognition event Staying the Course through Stormy Weather

"I want to tell you that I absolutely love the Constitution model I bought from you a while back. Just great. It brings me delight every day. Norman La Force"

"Your USS Constitution  ship model appears  scaled as she was originally designed- her port and starboard spar deck midships is open. Her bulwarks were not added until 1814 -- Good Job! got you on my favorite vendors list.  I'm very impressed with her 39 sails!!!.  Captain Fred Ladd. "

"MSM Team,
The Constitution sailed into Potomac, Maryland and everything looks great... Thank you very, very much for a superb product. Sincerely,
