USS Constitution

Postby Elephant Knight » Tue Nov 20, 2012 4:47 am

Thought I would post this here, just because.

Standing at 42 inches tall, it is by far my tallest ship ever. And 50 inches long makes it my longest one ever. It was displayed at Brickcon, so you might have been lucky enough to have seen it in the brick!

A link to it on my blog, where you can read more info on it

I was lucky enough to see the real thing in Boston and then this creation at Brickcon. As Josh said... it was impressive. He nailed it.

That is awesome indeed! You definitely nailed it, it looks incredibly realistic.
You would rather be building right now.

Thanks for the replies!

I saw the real thing in Boston in June, and that is partly what inspired me to build it.
