New photos. 23 of them. They start with the newest and work back. Last ten are with deck green like late 44. 13 before that are with stripes over everything like I think it looked in March 44. I just finished painting so most of the added goodies are not on it yet. There are some shots of the Acey-Deucy. All the guns will look better when I get the PE brass ammo belts mounted.

Im probably going to paint the cabin and deckhouse roofs Deck Green also. Then the Stars and numbers.

If anybody sees something totally wrong or out of place, PLEASE let me know. Once the parts star getting glued on it will be SOB to fix.

Here is my kit partially finished. Last night I painted the cabin and deckhouse roofs. This morning the white portions of the Stars and Bars. Still more to do. The next paint item will be the blue disks for the stars.









If something looks wrong, let me know.

It's looking real nice Ed. I never realized though that there was a star on the day cabin.

A lot of the boats had both.



In this PT 495 photo you can just make out the point of the deck house star pointing forward / port right behind the mast. You can also make out the edge of the blue disk.


The 493 and 490 are nested in the group.
