The academy and the level have advantages and disadvantages in terms of detail, but the placement of the boats on the side of the bridge was superior to the level. Academy/Doyusha released a kit with LEDs that made it relatively easy to decorate with lights.
Since the original kit was not designed for illumination, there was a problem that some of the portholes were not illuminated. However, the low price is overwhelming, and it is a kit with excellent cost performance.
The hull of the Revell kit is split left and right, so you can think of it as a painting premise.
As you can see at a glance, it’s heavily influenced by the Academy’s kit, and it’s almost the same impression. Unlike the Academy kit, it is a snap fit, so you can assemble it without plastic model adhesive.
The parts distribution of the chimney is basically the same as the academy. However, rather than a copy of the academy kit, I think that it is an inevitable part division if it is made into a colored plastic.
The pedestal is mahogany-like.
It is painted.
The detailed parts configuration is also quite similar to the academy.
The shape of the rudder is different from the Academy. Meng model above
Here is the academy. Compared to the image of the Olympic rudder, the impression of the hinge is better in the Mon model, but the shape of the rudder body feels more like the Academy. The shape near the center screw seems to be better for the Mon model.
Academy has more portholes near the stern than Monmodel. Looking at the Titanic launch images, the Academy looks better.
