1/150 scale. Frigate "United States." Revell Germany. The "United States" was one of the three great 44-gun frigates ordered by the U.S. Congress towards the end of the 18th Century. Launched in May 1797 and considerably heavier than her sister ship the "Constitution," the "United States" saw action during the War of 1812, capturing the British frigate "Macedonian." In the 1840s, American author Herman Melville served as an ordinary seaman aboard the "United States." He later published "White-Jacket," a fictionalized account of his time aboard the vessel. Captured by Confederate forces at Norfolk, she was later scuttled in an effort to block Federal forces' advance. Raised by victorious Federal personnel, the ship was finally broken up in 1866.
