At the end of the 18th century the U.S. Navy had only the schooner ENTERPRISE as the only war vessel to protect the merchant fleet from the pirates in the Mediterranean sea. The Enterprise was built in Maryland in 1799 and participated in the siege of Tripoli in 1801. She underwent major repair work in Venice in 1805, and Washington in 1811 where the rig was changed to berg. Enterprise and Constitution captured the pirate ship Matisco, and in 1813 captured the English brig Boxer. She was sunk in the West Indies in 1823.

Plank-on-bulkhead kit by Constructo contains pre-cut keel and ribs. A complete selection of cast metal, hardwood and solid brass fittings include turned brass cannons. Beech, mahogany, boxwood and other fine hardwoods are used for wooden parts. Cast metal anchors, wood blocks and deadeyes, brass pins and cotton rigging, flags and sail cloth are among the multitude of detailed parts, included. Giant plans and step-by-step instructions make building a pleasure.
