Di Stefan;
Your list is a good start but, there were several more boats with this mount. All RON 12 boats had this mount, as instructed in March 1943. ALL boats in RON 9, 10, 11 and 12 were officially authorized to employ this MK 12 mount.
PT 195 originally had the MK12 mount in both turrets. and so did PT 155 and possibly PT 161 at one time in their service. There is some evidence that a RON 7 boat also had two MK 12 mount's, I am inclined th think this was PT 137, as both PT 137 and PT 195 shared the title of "the most heavily armed boat in the Pacific" (however, in PT 137 case I think this included rockets, not just guns)RON 12 usually removed the original .50 cal turret depression rails. Some boats later reverted back to a twin .50 in one turret.
Take care,
TED

Those look great, diStefan, but...at almost $30, they're about twice the current average cost of a Revell 1/72nd 80' Elco kit...

Pretty cool, though.

Welcome to the world of 3D printing. The parts can be pricy but if you really want to do something special or unique with the kit it's a good option.
