Robert W Martel I also have this kit, had it for some years now. How much blood did you have to give for that decking??
25. September 2017 at 22:23:11
David Suhadolc $85, More than what I paid for the Kit! But its well worth it in my opinion.

Robert W Martel David, I'll be watching this one with interest. As I said I've had this kit for some time. I did save a bunch of nice veneer sheets, figured I could make the deck planking!?? Also saved a few rolls of thin copper sheeting. Even just to build her OOB is a sizeable job. I built it also when I was a kid, but didn't put much effort into it. Looking forward to doing her again.
26. September 2017 at 04:08:21
Martin Oostrom I also build this one when i was younger. I guess it was the late 80's. Do try for a different rigging than the oob one. That one is way too thick.
26. September 2017 at 05:29:08
David Suhadolc I plan to do my best with copper paint for the lower hull, but if it doesn't turn out how I want then I am going to buy the pre punched copper sheeting from Model Shipways. It shouldn't be hard to attach but will be very tedious to attach each individual sheet which will number over 100.
As for the rigging I am still doing some research to find the appropriate scale diameter.
I do plan to replace all of the cannons with turned brass as the originals are atrocious by today's standards.

This is actually not USS United States, but only a reboxed USS Constitution, the USS UNited States should have a Poop Deck, and it will be wholly inaccurate unless one is scrathbuilt

I can not find any info on this kit number. Anyone have this kit? If so, can you share a picture of the boxart, verify the scale and find out the year it was produced. It should be marked on the side near the UPC code and copyright data.

Dave Barnum I don't have the box art but I did build the kit & it was a nice build.

Steve Wilson Product ID:5616 maybe the wrong number, as the number on the one I found is, 0398 with 85- prefix.

Keith K Hi Andy, what model number did you complete? Did you do a straight build or were there things you modified or replaced? Curious minds want to know.
5. October 2015 at 21:52:05
Andy W. Hi Keith.

I did the one as listed in my completed Kits, the Revell #05602 Constitution, if it's that what you mean with Model Number. It was fun to build this Kit. But in fact of the Age of the Kit, sometimes it was difficult to seperate the Parts from the Sprues. What i mean is, i asked myself: Is it already the Part or still the Sprue? ;)

In fact i build it mostly Out of the Box. I only added other thread for the Rigging. The thread i used came from Artesania Latina. It took me two Years to finish this Kit, with an actual building Time of one and a half Year. At sometimes i had to Pause because i couldn't see the threads an knots anymore.

The only Thing i have to do is to take some Pictures of this Ship, for my Gallery here and in other Forums.

Best regards, Andy
6. October 2015 at 16:45:29
Keith K Thx. I appreciate your response. If I may ask, where did you buy it, meaning, what part of the world? I get the impression that Revell had different box art and numbers for outside North America.
6. October 2015 at 23:36:35
Andy W. Hi Keith. No problem.
I bought mine here in Germany. If I remember right, the price was somewhere between 70 and 80 euros and was an reissue from the nineties, I think.

My box has "Revell 1974, 1976" on the side and a UPC code, but the instruction sheet has 1987 on it. Does that affect the timeline or do we just say 1976 model with 1987 instruction sheet"?

Urban Gardini The instructions in your box could've been replaced at some time by a previous owner.
5. October 2015 at 22:12:32
Keith K I thought about that, but the kit was sealed. Now, I wouldn't put it past someone to reseal a box, but that seems a lot of work for a $66 kit. Everything in the box is pristine, except for the vacuform sails. They had a few dimples but I expect them to smooth right out.
5. October 2015 at 22:25:43
Troy W I assume (based on other multiple release kits) 1974 is the date when something changed in the previous '69 release, or the first release with that version of the instructions (the earlier versions likely having different art on the instructions), 1976 is the new art (this rebox listing). 1987 makes me feel there yours was resealed with new instructions (this versions box art would be an oddity in 1987 (however not impossible)) ~ I know some toy stores here in the 80's were able to reseal kits, so it is not unlikely, and may have been sealed for years.
Another angle is that Revell did list a 1/96 USS Constitution in their catalogs around the '87~88 period, same number H398 (it is not listed on scalemates currently ~ so maybe the box art wasn't changed?).

6. October 2015 at 07:40:04
Keith K Yes, the 74 kit added sails. I found a video review and took a screenshot of the box. It is definitely different than the 76. The tell is the little liberty bell above the Revell badge on the top. Also, the 74 included a little ship's history booklet. I suspect I have a kit from the 87 timeframe, but no different than the 76 kit, except they had to print more instruction sheets and updated the date on the sheet. I have added the 74 and will add the latest release (2014) with completely rewritten build and rigging instructions based on the years of customer calls to their hotline.
