1/96 H396 Revell Frigate USS United States Old Wagon - With Billowing Sails
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
1976 release. 36 inches long and 27 inches high. Highly detailed and has the correct changes for this ship. Includes sails and full rigging. The box has wear as shown. Inside, the kit has never been started. All parts except the hull (which was never sealed) are still sealed in the factory bags. All instructions, rigging diagrams, vacuform sails and pre-formed ratlines are included. The instructions have light bug damage that does not interfere with their use. The Revell model depicts the vessel as modified for use as a flagship, with a much enlarged, rebuilt stern and "roundhouse." Writer Herman Melville's (apparently unenthusiastic) service on this vessel, including many details of equipment and life aboard, is detailed in his autobiographical novel, "White-Jacket"(1850).
