First I went OH! Then I went ooooooh.

IMHO, not even close. Did not get past looking at the North Carolina

Warlord: 14 lower deck ports. North Carolina: 16

Warlord: 2 galleries. North Carolina: 1

Warlord: 2 full rows of stern windows, heavy stern decor. North Carolina: one row plus upper row of half height windows, very little stern decor.

Warlord: square bow. North Carolina: Round bow.

Warlord: Open waist, long poop. North Carolina: Complete fully armed quarterdeck/spar deck/forecastle making a third gun deck, very short poop.

at $41.50 USD I simply cannot squint and make this work. ;(

Evidently the designer didn't do his homework.

It is a nice model for one who doesn't care about a realistic portrayal of an important early 19th century US ship.

Looks like they are just adding to their generic ship collections.

I knew I should not have looked around any further but curiosity got the best of me. They are using a 3-decker as USS independence. Oh my.

Another Warlord Fail.

Judging from the stern, it looks like they might have used a Spanish three-decker and just put on a different name for Independence. Ohio looks like the used the same hull as North Carolina and just put a different stern on. Oddly enough, they got the one row of stern windows right on Ohio but gave her two sets of stern galleries. Definitely have to agree with Rich Bliss and VSB on this one. Sloppy research, and would not spend that kind of $$ for them.

I would rather they expand their plastic range to 64s and 50s from the 18th and early 19th century. Disappointed that their current 64 set is resin.

I do like historical accuracy, but for me Warlord is close enough, other than their US Constellation, which is a ACW ship passed off as 1812.

I think "close enough" is their business model on a number of things. It seems to make them money.

Just more fodder for the Royal Navy
