As part of my on going project to fill gaps in my 1:700 Age of Sail collection with specific models for single ship and small squadron scenarios, I have once again turned to the offerings from Turner Miniatures.


The USS Constellation and the large French 40-gun frigate La Virginie are two such models, and I have put together a post showcasing them and the history that has prompted their inclusion into the collection.

As always, gorgeous work. Where did you get the color scheme for the "Constellation?"

Thank you.

As detailed in the post, the principle inspiration for the colour scheme is based on a 1985 model by Thomas Todd, that referenced the 1797 Baltimore Gazette for its construction, but does admit that the colours are some what speculative.
