"USS Constitution"
dereisig
When I first opened this kit, I thought wow am I ever going to get this done. Three months later I was very impressed with this one. I had a few issues, one was the rigging instructions, but most of that was me because I didn't look at the whole packet first, there are three different ways to rig her. Over all this was an excellent model. You will get your moneys worth!

"excellent kit"
raidersfan19530
This is a well made kit. The parts fit together well and the instructions are for the most part clear. The sails that come with this model are vacuum pressed and look Bad. I was unable to find hand made sails so I made it without sails, really just as good. Make sure you have a set of small drills to open up the pules for the rigging, and bring your patience. All in all I loved working on this ship and now finished it looks great.

 
"hard, but fun to do"

This was the biggest model I've ever built. It's not easy.and took me about 8 months, but was worth the effort. The rigging was the hardest part. Some of the rigging instructions were difficult to understand, and almost impossible to do. After a while I pretty much gave up on the directions and just made it up as I went along. It came out very nice and is nice to display. I tried to paint it a close to the original ship as possible especially the weathered hull. There are many pictures of the real one online to use as a guide. If you have the time and patience I recommend it.

 
"old faithful"

I am halfway through the full kit; just completed the standing rigging, taking a break and then on to the much more difficult running rigging. This is my third one in my lifetime. The first I built right after college, got as far as the standing rigging and had it destroyed by the family cat. The cat lived, but paid for it big-time for the rest of his miserable life. The second I built in the late 70's to full sail (with some notable areas of extreme difficulty in the inner running rigging). I had that model for eighteen years until I moved across the country and it had too much fatigue to survive the trip. As fir this kit, I admit I did not buy it from Hobbylinc. I bought it very used (it still had the Glencoe Ave, Venice address. I got it used from a local hobby store (one of only two in Albuquerque) for fifty dollars. It was complete when I started; but, thanks to Revell service, I was able to replace small parts I lost along the way so far. it is going well, but I did need a break. I have built about thirty WWII aircraft kits along the way, all from Hobbylinc. I will get back to it soon. It was, and is, a magnificent kit. Its detail is wonderful. its fit, with the exception of hull deck assemble, is great The biggest reason I wrote this review id to maybe warn parents of kids below the teens to buy this kit. it is not for a beginner, in any way. But you do learn a lot from the kit; building models, ship construction and history, and a very real and present example of American history. I hope I live long enough to finish it.

Comments

  • Keep from small children. Kit contains small parts which may cause swallowing in infants.
  • Can be rigged with or without sails.
