Annual Show

Our Annual Show is open to all ship modelers and is great opportunity to show your model to the general public at the USS Constitution Museum.  Only Guild members may win Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals or Certificates of Commendation in our judged competition.  However, all models are eligible for the Most Popular Model Award, voted for by Museum visitors; the William Postar Memorial Cup, awarded by the Museum's Curatorial Committee; and the Member's Choice Award, voted for by Guild members.

Our Annual Show is co-sponsored by the USS Constitution Museum and by generous support from the Boston Marine Society.

After having organized the annual USS Constitution Model Shipwright Guild’s ship model show for the past 15 years as part of my job at the USS Constitution Museum, I thought it was time to join the Guild and start making some ship models of my own with the support of the Guild members, many of whom have become friends.
