Tim Parker shortens his bucket list and provides us with a great photographic walk around of the USS Constitution.

Very nice photos, great details to bedevil a modeler with an unbuilt kit of this vessel in his stash. As I'm reading Ian Toll's outstanding book, "Six Frigates" these photos fit right in.

Doug & Robert,

I'm glad you like the pictures. In taking all these photos, my intention was to try and focus on details, as kit instructions & drawings from the time period don't always explain things.

If you have any questions or would like to have an explanation of a picture, please feel free to ask, and I'll try my best to answer.

When my son entered Suffolk University nearby, we made the pilgrimage to Old Iron Sides. They also fire off a gun every day which is pretty cool.

I am looking for photos of the constitution's backside where the planking curves up to the stern galleries, something close up and also an angle shot up toward the quarter gallery and the stern gallery meet. I am planking my 1/72 scale plank on bulkhead model of the USF United States and I am not sure how the curve looks. Is it a very steep curve or a more gradual one? Two of the photos will help, but, I need some thing s little closer at the stern.
