Revell 1/96 British Man O War

Recommended Posts

Has anyone on this site built the Ravell 1/96 British Man O War?  I recently received the model kit as a surprise gift. It is unopened and setting on a shelf right now as I continue working on my Cutty Sark. I searched this site for any build logs for the Man O War but have had no luck. My ship research indicates it/was not an actual historic ship, but more a artist’s rendering of a Spanish gallion? Don’t know if this is true or not. Would love to find someone’s build log if there is one.

Yes that's more or less true,  I found the kit is an actual mix of both English and Spanish Galleons, it is of course the same kit as the Spanish Galleon but for a few alterations, and the Spanish Galleon kit came out before the English one. 

It's not an actual model of a particular English Galleon, only in parts.

Thanks Robert. I will go with the more or less. At least once it is completed and I display it on a shelf I don’t have to tell people it is just a pretend ship like something from Disney. Even though there was not an actual British Man O War the ship’s design and structure replicates a Spanish gallion. I can live with that.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
