Sam Cassano, another one of our new designers for Model Expo, is rapidly nearing completion of the
USS Essex by Model Shipways! As one of the sister ships of the USS Constitution during the War of 1812, the Essex was commanded by Captain David Porter and took ten prizes in a few short months!
As you can see from Sam's pictures, we are releasing the USS Essex kit as another admiralty model kit. Similar to our Model Shipways USS Confederacy, you will be able to see all of the fine details underneath the deck! If all goes as planned, we will be releasing the USS Essex for pre-order in July 2012! Stay tuned to our blog and emails!
