"Good model for JFK's ship"
j.shields28
Excellent model. Any skill level could probably handle this model. The model is a convenient size for displaying, not small and not overbearingly large. An interesting issue about the model is that the directions say to paint the model gray, however, as you'll notice on the box and picture, the model is gray on the waterline and olive drab above it. I did the green. Turned out very nice. I suppose the choice would be up to you. Good model overall. It comes with 3 figures, including a Lt. JFK.

"Great buy"
donohoejoe123
One of the easiest models that i've completed. Great for beginners!

 
"Decent kit, could be better or worse"
jerbear669
Nice detail on the kit, the included figures are nice and the details on the weapons are good. As others have said, the hull and some pieces were warped and for a novice builder like myself it was a little difficult but also taught me a lot on how to putty seems etc. I'd recommend the kit for sure, just not someone's very first kit.

 
"Don't bother with this one"
jsaber09
Probably one of the worst kits I've ever encountered. That said, when I make a model I am pretty picky about fit and smooth seams. I'm not adverse to doing some work to make a rough kit into something I'm happy with, but this one got the best of me! It is a fairly simple kit, and should be pretty easy for a kid to put together. The molds are very old, I think made in the '60's, and the wear and tear over the years has taken it's toll. He's why I don't recommend this kit. The hull does not fit well with the deck. I got them together, but it took quite a bit of finesse. The torpedo tubes don't quite fit together, and that means there is a lot of seam work. I'm talking about a LOT of seam work! And it's not easy because they have reinforcement bands that need seam work too. If you really want to build this kit, you may be better off cutting apart the tubes and rebuilding them using new material and parts from the kit tubes. The railing around the guns doesn't come close to fitting. It's supposed to wrap most of the way around the gun area, but it's cast in two pieces, and the pieces are not close to mating. Mine were about 1/8 off, which is a lot at this scale. There are some other problems with accuracy, and fit in other areas that I could live with or fix. But it got to the point of this is no longer fun so it went in the scrap bin. Time to retire that kit, Revell!

Comments

  • Keep away from small children, as parts may cause choking in infants.
  • For ages 10 and up.
  • Revell-Monogram has three skill level models, 1 being the easiest, 3 being the most challenging.
  • Box's bottom can be cutout to further enhance its display.
  • It's recommended to use only Revell cement, since this kit is molded of styrene plastic.
