"Great kit of the 'Mighty Mo', site of the Japanese surrender"
cdnmodeller (Edmonton, AB)
I built this kit quite a long time ago, after seeing it in a WW 2 documentary. It was my re-entry into the world of modeling after a lengthy absence. This kit represents the 'Mighty Mo' as she appeared in 1945, at the time of the Japanese surrender on her deck. The parts detached from the molds quite easily & went together well. Most of the parts are quite easy to handle even for someone with big fingers like me. Almost 20 years after I first built it I still have it. Certainly worth picking up!

"An OK Kit That Disappoints, but Looks OK When Completed."
toflaher
After reading all of the other comments on this kit, I can only say that they are, indeed, quite accurate. I have returned to model building as a hobby after a long, long absence - my last kit was in 1986! So, I bought Revell's Arizona, and I enjoyed it very much. I had passed over the Big Mo a number of times, and finally said to myself, Why not? This will be a good trial run for the 1/200th which I'm planning to build in the future as a display piece for my bar. Needless to say, the critics are right. Flash? There's more flash on this kit than I anticipated. In fact, while an easy build, you actually spend a lot more time trimming the pieces to make them look relatively decent than you do gluing and putting it together. I found myself hungry. I have a budget for model kits and buy about two a month. So, when I bought Mo I thought, well, this is it - until I opened the kit and actually built it. My biggest disappointment was there are no propeller drive shafts! One other commentator here outlined the history of why that happened in the manufacturing process. But, seriously, Revell!? Can we get a new mold for this iconic piece of WWII history? The good news is that after you've removed all of the flash and excess trim, lined up the parts and painted it, the boat doesn't look too bad on my book shelf. I'll save my real modeling joy, however, for the 1/200th scale beast. That's the Mo I'm looking forward to, and while this one, obviously, doesn't live up to my expectations for the 1/200th, I do think that it's an OK model for someone who's never worked in this medium before. I liked, I guess, but was disappointed at the same time by the lack of quality. How so? So bad that I had to go out immediately and get the B-25 Mitchell 1/48th, which is a GREAT kit, and which scratched my monthly model itch quite nicely.

 
"OK Kit"
mirecyli
Haven't modeled a military ship since the sixties but I know I did this one. At that time I knew nothing about modeling but loved WWII and built everything I could get my hands on. All that stuff has been long gone. I was disappointed with this kit not knowing what to expect after so many years. It is simple and poor in detail but as good as it can be in this small scale. I may go bigger but my first love is aircraft and those are more possible to be seen in person. The only ships I have visited are the aircraft carrier at Pensacola, the U.S.S. Alabama in Mobile, AL and the U.S.S. Texas in Houston, TX.

 
"The worst model I have made"
briand_97
Flash is everywhere on this model, the parts are ill-fitting and the detail is laughable at best (the planes are particularly horrible). I wasn't expecting perfection for a $20 model but honestly, the underachieved based on a really low expectation. I would not recommend this except for a first model that is meant to be tossed soon after completion.

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.
