I just purchased a Revell Cutty Sark kit model H-368. Does anyone know what scale this ship is?

Built mine in 72, don't remember. Seems like it was about 2 feet long. The the length of the ship and model are the numbers to crunch to find out.

looked up a length of 212' long, using your 24", I came up with 1/106, that seems like an odd number to me. Could be the 212' is hull and your 24" is overall.

I'm currently restoring one of those kits for a local museum and am using a set of plans from 1964 - the scale

indicated on the plans is 1/96...hope that helps!

 

Cheers

The 24 inch Cutty Sark by Revell was one of their "build a legend in a weekend" kits. Looking in my old Revell catalogue, they had a Constitution kit, Civil War Blockade Runner kit, and Mayflower kit in that line. The Cutty Sark was H-368 and listed at 24 inches long. They also had a 1/96 scale kit that was 36 inches long, H-399. This was a completely different kit than the smaller 24" version. .

 

The length of the full sized ship is 288 ft so the 24 inch kit's scale is 1/144 scale.
