I’m fairly new to model building and I can’t seem to find the answer to this anywhere.

I was looking to get the Revell USS Constitution 1/196 size (85-5404). On the Revell website it says it’s a Level 5 build, but when I go looking to buy it, all I see is Level 3.

Am I missing something?

It sounds like a mixup between the 2 kits of the Constitution that Revell produced.
One is in 1/196, and it's a skill level 3, according to the box lid.
The other is in 1/96, so it's larger and more details, and that one has a skill level 5.
I built the 1/196 scale kit when I was a kid, in my early teens. It definitely takes some skill, but even a beginner can build it into a nice model, with patience and care.
Hope that helps!
