Hello. This is my USS Constitution build, sadly she didnt turn out as good as I wanted, but with my current motivation I can't be bothered to fix all the issues. For the most part she's alright and I think that enough for now. She's alot bigger than most ships so it was hard to not make her look extremely bland. Once again, full interior like in all of my tallships.

Thanks! The scale is 1.5:1 scale. All my sailing ships are built in this scale to allow more detail and avoid cluttering :) My ww2 ships however are 1:1 but I might build some in 1.5:1 sometime since I prefer to use that scale but have never tried using it with my ww2 vessels.
