Revell 1/96 USS Kearsarge Historic Civil War Steam Sloop, H391 plastic model kit

1/96 H391 Revell USS Kearsarge Historic Civil War Steam Sloop

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Ideal builder; please read below. Hard-to-find issue dated 1971. Includes beautiful John Steel framable box art titled 'Victory Off Cherbourg', site of the Kearsarge's famous duel with the Confederate ship Alabama off the coast of France. Very large 1/96 scale ship that measures 34.5 inches long when assembled. Very highly detailed and well molded. Features pre-formed ratlines, two position gun ports, guns that turn and elevate, movable propeller, special stand, name plate and 20 action figures. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing one tiny pin #23. This part cannot be seen when the kit is assembled; it attaches a cannon to the deck. Easily made from round stock or pulled sprue. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts. One fire bucket is a lighter shade of brown; it is from the earlier issue. Includes two types of rigging material, metal chains, rat lines, rat line cutting pattern, instructions, rigging diagrams and flag sheet. NOTE: missing the historical booklet. NOTE: The rat line cutting sheet and rigging diagrams are professional photocopies. The rigging diagrams are on the same size very large paper as the original ones. NOTE: this is not the version with the factory painted hull. Also, the chainplate/deadeye assembles are very fragile and well-known for breaking. This kit is no exception. But I have accounted for all broken parts and they are present, and sealed into small zip lock bags for safe keeping.
