Hello Guy's
Thanks for al the pic's & info you have given over the last few weeks. On how to backdate the Italeri PT596 kit.
I have know decided it's time to bite the bullet.
I've just started to build the PT174. it's going to be an interesting build with a lot of scratchbuilding. Hopfully I shall do a decent job. as I get some decent pic's I shall add a link so that you all can have a look.
thants all for now.

Link worked for me. Good start on the kit. I thought back-dating to the 495 boat was a lot of work but, Wow, my hat is off to you. If I can be of any help, let me know. I've picked up a lot of little things along the way.
Examples:

The forward bow hatch pivots to the front on the 596 but that was to allow room for the 37mm mount. On the earlier boats, w/o the factory 37mm mount, it pivots to the rear like the other hatches.

The toe rails on the bow do not extend as far back as on earlier boats w/o the factory rocket launchers.

The port splash shield is not right for earlier boats.

The 50 cal ammo belt feeders pivot with the guns in the kit but not in real life. They would only look right for guns with barrels horizontal.
