USS Constitution Model
Military Heritage Museum is pleased to accept a 5' model of the USS Constitution. The ship model was originally built by Floyd Lach. It has been donated by niece Betty Nalow. Both Floyd and his wife Virginia served in the US Navy. The kit, that this model was built from, was a wedding anniversary gift from Virginia to her husband. It took a year to complete, using materials that included: wood, string, glue; paint, stencils, tweezers, razor blades, etc. Learn more about the history of the USS Constitution.
