Oh wow - I missed this discussion!
I love the idea of trying to convert the USS Constitution´s Kit into a USS or in a HMS President. We had a discussion concerning different paint-schemes for the big american Frigate in a German forum - and of course there was the idea of using british paint scheme for the captured USS President or for the rebuild HMS President. I was told that the british version had a round stern - according the the changed fashion when she was build - finally in 1829. But someone found photos of the ship showing a very similar stern (if you connive at the second "floor" of cabins on the spar-deck). It seems to be the same "six-window-configuration" which the Isaac-hull-Modell of the USS constitution shows. Here is the link:
Here is another one - showing her bow:
In my eyes, this easily could be mistaken as "USS Constitution" as recieving ship in 188x.
So I tried to find out what´s available in good old Britain and asked the National Maritim Museum - here is their answer:
