I am not sure if the George Washington and the Patrick Henry had the same paint scheme. I would think so.
I was stations on the Washington during a recore overhaul. While in the dry dock the boat was repainted with the hull half black top and half red bottom. The black was shiny while in the dry dock. After we were floated out and tied to the pier for a while, the black faded rather quickly to a flat black kind of dark gray streaking.
You build is not wrong. You built the boat from available information when you built it.
The kit itself is not accurate. Having been on the GW, I know the interior layout is incorrect or more like incomplete. The instruction furnished are not correct but that is not the fault of the kit builder. The Navy at the time, released drawing for the submarines that were very basic and inaccurate on purpose. The boats were new and the Navy was keeping it's secrets.
Correct or wrong .... accurate or inaccurate ..... it doesn't matter. You built with the information you had at the time. I think your display model is awesome!
I like it! --------------------- You have to build more of these open models or share more photos of boats completed already. I do not have the patience to do this type of modeling.
If I remember right, Revell recently released a George Washington (SSBN-598) kit which is the same as the Patrick Henry, but just different box art.
It's actually the Renwal mold from the 1960's. They were acquired from Renwal by Revell when Renwal folded. So there are two Revell kits; the one shown here and the Renwal version. Neither are particularly accurate in the interior, but the old Renwal is closer in external dimensions and form. But, they are fun to build and look at. Here are some photos of a completed Renwal kit (not the GW, but the Ethan Allen version) by Phil Toy.
