Mine is a work in progress of the 1:85 scale plank on frame model of the US Constellation, American Frigate 1798. I still have a long way to go. 1st layer of planking is finished. It has been a real learning experience. The hull is 25" long. The model kit is from Artesania Latina and the included instructions are lacking a lot in clarity of construction. Fortunately, there are a lot of Youtube videos these days that have helped me considerably. At the current pace, it will be several more years before I complete it. It goes in spurts for me. I will get a portion done and then take a long break to do other projects and hobbies. The cool thing is the real restored ship is moored in Baltimore harbor so I was able to visit it and take a lot of photos when my son was in attending medical school in Maryland.
