[MOC] USS Constitution

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello all, I wanted to share my long time project, the USS Constitution.  The Constitution has always been a favorite of mine, and I've seen other great Lego versions of this tall ship, but I wanted to make one that is true to minifig scale.  At long last I'm (almost) complete and ready to share some pics.  I hope to be adding more polished pictures soon, so check back for the latest.  Would love to hear your comments, thanks!

Absolutely amazing! 

Did he use this piece for the hull?

Thanks, I didn't use those pieces. Here is an LDD cross-section of my design.

Thank you! I started working on this 5 years ago, but progress was slow, there was probably a whole year in there where I didn't touch it.

Wow, that's an interesting illusion for the ground by using baseplates, also nice usage of grey barrels as cannons, this surely takes some skill to build.
