"Rather mediocre quality ship, But god ship for a beginner or someone getting into the ship building models"
thecarrollfamily1417 (Louisville, Ky USA)
I was rather disappointed about the quality of the plastic used for this ship. First off was there is no shafts or propellers for the ship. It has a rudder but I guess no engines to make the ship go. There are a lot of defects in the molding of the part runners. Some parts also didn't fit on well. This is most notably with the main gun turrets, anti air turrets and secondary turrets. The slot in which you put the small turrets in is often too large, meaning the anti air and secondary turrets will fly off without glue (which makes it unable to traverse) while some slots are too small, requiring you to bore it out with something. The main battery turrets also had difficulty fitting in due to the low quality of the plastic of the molds, and the defects in the mold, meaning I had to trim down the turret mountings and gun barrels to actually get them to fit. One thing that was really annoying was how about half of the superstructure and the deck were all one-piece, meaning it is difficult to color in the deck without accidently overflowing onto the superstructure. The hull is also rather inaccurate, as the underwater part is way too small for the ship. The completed result looks fine. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this set. Get a Tamiya USS Missouri kit or something instead as that will have higher detail than this.

"Great beginner model"
douglaswilson262
I had bought this model as my first ship model and my first paint project and the model is a one day build and has very few pieces and less than the m41a1 bulldog from Tamya and for someone trying out painting models it's really good start out model it has lots of surface areas and some fine tip painting spots to do and I'd highly recommend

 
"GREAT FIRST SHIP AFTER 25 YEARS OUT OF THE HOBBY WORLD"
thebutlersellsit
This was the first model I completed in 25 years. My eyes weren't what they were when in my 20s thank god for 3x magnifier led light. This model was a great one to start with, it was pretty easy to assemble. painting was fun and frustrating. i kept having to repaint hull to get the bootstrap straight. and every time i did something on deck w paint I would mess something else up requiring a touch up. but well worth the time. the rigging was was tough and getting signal flags was intense. I definitely recommend this model was so much fun on the cold ny winter nights when I could not go out for a cigar!

 
"Fun build, better look"
beaubowden6 (Troy Ohio)
This is my third model ship build, and it was a very fun project. It took me a weekend to build. The only reason I gave this a four star is because of the lack of detail on the planes.(I decided to leave them off the model.) I do not own an airbrush so I brush painted this kit, and it turned out great. If you follow the painting directions it will be easy to paint.(All but the deck.) Also I would strongly suggest buying thread thread for the ship rigging, the rigging with the flags took this kit from good to great. This is a great kit, the low price makes it even better!

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.
  • It's recommended to use only Revell cement, since this kit is molded of styrene plastic.
