1/96 Wood Deck for the Old-Time Revell USS United States. Fits Retired Revell USS United States Kit in 1/96 and NOT the 1/150 more modern offering. This Wood Deck for the vintage 1/96 USS United States manufactured by Revell. This set includes the small poop deck that was built on the USS United States (but not on the USS Constitution). The other two decks are identical between the USS United States and the USS Constitution.
Our decks are micro-thin (about the thickness of a heavy sheet of paper) and made of 100% real wood, backed with thermal fleece to provide working strength. Our manufacturing process combines Laser Printing and Laser Cutting for extreme precision. Decks are intended to be cemented to plastic model with styrene cement, Contact Cement, or Epoxy. We do not provide a self-adhesive backing as our experience has shown that these can be problematic in positioning. With the thermal fleece backing, the glue has plenty of surface to bind to.
As for the detail, this deck includes historically accurate planking, to scale, on the USS Constitution as she appeared in 1812. The planking pattern molded into the deck is overscale, but our fine printing process allows for historic scale accuracy. Note the close-ups that feature the scale nibbing pattern at the bow, and the individual plank tint variations.Our process uses a very fine inkjet printed line 1/300 of an inch thick and printed in grey to simulate the oakum that was inserted between the actual deck planking on wooden sailing ships. We use this complicated two-step printing process because we are able to apply a line much thinner than "burning" in the pattern with the laser. Also, the simulated end-cuts between the planks are also printed in a tone consistent with the oakum, avoiding the extra-dark chocolaty-brown lines that can result when relying upon the laser to do this. The next result is that you have a real wood surface that looks like real wood, with accurate scale and color oakum lines to separate the individually colored planks. Best of all, each deck is printed an entire, continuous sheet that extends from bow-to-stern, covering up those ugly seams in the three-piece deck as molded by Revell.
The single sheet of wood is precision cut and drops directly into place onto the plastic deck in one step. Super-fast to do, and a superb result every time!
Decks are precision measured and cut to 1/100 of an inch accuracy, and all of our decks are custom tested on actual plastic kits. This deck is known to fit the vintage "USS United States" by Revell molded in 1/96. Note that this set is TWENTY-SEVEN INCHES LONG, and consists of the gun deck, and spar deck and unique poop deck.This is for the LARGEST Revell kit, not the smaller Revell Germany kit in 1/150 scale. Those decks will be coming soon! If you want to make a USS United States that has super-accurate detail and a gorgeous real wood deck, there is no better way to go than this deck.
