Revell's SS Unted States Model Kit


revell uss united states ship

SS United States



The SS United Sates was built in 1950-1952.

On her maiden voyage the vessel broke the previous Transatlantic speed record by more than 12 hours. She ran from New York harbor to Cornwell, UK in 3 days, 10 hours, and 40 minutes.

Her top speed was a secret, as well as the design of her lower hull at the time.

For fear of fire, the entire ship was constructed with almost no wood materials. Cloth type materials were actually spun glass. Cabin closet hangers were aluminum. Even the grand piano was a special type of wood meant to be fire proof, even when doused with gasoline. One of the few wooden objects on board was the butcher block in the galley.

This Revell ship model is around 19.5 inches when measuring her hull. The entire kit is molded in white, with printed paper flags and a small decal sheet.

There are no details for the underside of the hull. At the time this model was first issued, the underside design was still a secret, so Revell could only make a generic bottom to the ship.
