Hi all

I'm new here

I show you a ship based on the USS Constellation design of a official set of 1978.

I have do some change specially on canons, sails and masts. But I don't decide how to call him for the moment. I will do another change in few time.

Hello Captain Chenben!

The best way to introduce yourself is like you did: By posting a MOC.

The ship has a good color schema. I like the red line you've added to the hull.

Do you also own the USS constellation and did you rebuild it to make this ship?

Where's a picture of the original Constellation? We can compare them!

Since I'm not familiar with the original I cannot tell the difference. Silly me!

I have to agree with my Mister Phes, the only time I've seen the USS Constellation was in the cartoon Action Force (GI JOE for England) in the episode "Sink the Montana" 8-|

The Peeron link The Wiki Article

There are 2 USS Constellations that were sailing vessels, i'm pretty sure the lego version is one of the six original US frigates built in 1797, and not the one rebuilt in 1854.

The image of the real thing:

Thank's to all.

I haven't the original ship, i have use my own pieces to build this.

The ship is a little bit smaller than the barracuda.

I have change cannons, because i haven't enough grey cylinder and i think them appear to big. I have used lego pieces like this in grey color : 2780.png

I have added a red line in the hull, i have found it pretty.

I think to add somes ropes, the sails on the beaupr

Little evo in the ship

With evo you mean evolution?

What are the changes you've been doing to the ship?
