Revell Germany 1/96 scale USS Constitution?

Post by Bill Michael » Thu, 13 Jun 2002 01:22:24



In this week's e-newsletter from Greatmodels, they listed the Revell Germany
1/96 scale USS Constitution kit.  The kit retails for $127, and was
discounted to about $100 (US).

Several questions come to mind:

1.  Huh?
2.  Are they kidding?
3.  Really?
4.  Isn't this the same kit as that has sold in the US boxing for as many
years as I can remember?
5.  The one that is still listed on the Revell-Monogram website?
6.  The one that has a msrp of $70(US) or so in nearly every hobby shop in
the US?
7.  The same one that is available for about $59 from Squadron?
8.  The same one that is availbale for $55 from Greatmodels?
9.  Why would they bother to stock the $100 version?
10.  The German version is the same kit in a differnet box, right?
11.  Does this mean that the US kit is now OOP, or will be soon?
