Those level indicators don’t mean a lot.

Cant speak to the Titanic, but the corvette model is difficult.

Not bad difficult, however it has a lot of parts and the construction is time consuming.

I think at least for Revell the total number of parts plays a big role in skill level.

I have wondered about that . I have seen many grown folks stumble on a snap kit build and many younger modelers sail right through the Lord nelson in 1/700 . I think it's a suggested thing based on ones ability and hand eye co-ordination .

 I for one have never found any kit beyond me .Some took longer because of my learning ability with the way some older kits went together . Remember Revell's Multi - Piece cars for example .

 It took some years and re-builds ( With new kits ) as I got around their exceptionally bad fit and weird join areas . Who'd think they would have the body go together on prominent trim lines that would ruin the overall look if not done just so ?

 I for one , have always wondered why they separate wings at the outside of the fillet instead of at the fuselage ?

In my opinion, it is a lot easier to fill the gap at the outside (wing/fillet) than on the the fuselage to fillet line.
