Italeri 1/560 Statue of Liberty
Italeri review
Reviewed July 2017
by Timothy Dike
If you're looking for the perfect way to celebrate the 4th, Italeri has this statue of liberty kit that is perfect for a standalone display or as a background for your fleet sailing in the New York Harbor.  This kit scales out roughly to 1/560 scale.
The kit comes molded in color so it can be built right of the box.  Lady liberty is nicely molded with a separate crown. 

The detailing closely matches that of the original figure.

The base is molded in a tan color with the pedestal and the foundation on two separate sprues.  The masonry detailing is very nice and really only needs little bit of weathering to accent the mortar lines.
Instructions include a six page booklet with information about the statue and straightforward assembly instructions.  More detailed paint call outs are shown on the instructions.
Whether you're looking for an architectural scale model of Lady Liberty or a really cool background for your ships this kit is just what you need.
