Revell USS Constitution 32" The celebrated battle between the U.S.S. Constitution and the H.M.S. Guerriere during the war of 1812 was actually the second time these two frigates had met on the open sea. A few weeks prior to their historic conflict, a British squadron led by the lordly Guerriere surround the frigate. With escape seemingly impossible, the captain of the Constitution, Isaac Hull, ordered out the small boats and by kedgin a maneuver whereby an anchor was dropped some distance ahead and the hawser heaved in, the ship was gradually pulled forward. Hull also ordered most of the fresh water pumped overboard and the sails wet down to catch every breath of air. The Constitution escaped. Several weeks later, the two war ships met again, alone this time, and the mighty Constitution completely destroyed the Guerriere.

- Good Fun Review by Dgold
Not for beginners but if you have built before, it's a great challenge.
The instructions are very clear but read them carefully. (Posted on 11/28/11)
