Topic: New update set for Italeri PT-596 kit from Lion Roar
http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?cid=101&fid=102&tid=564



Just caught wind of this on another forum. Lion Roar of China has an update set that appears to fix most of the problems with the Italeri set. It's a big step up from the Edwards set as well. Early US pricing is at about $160 which puts it more expensive than the kit. What else is new in the after market world though. Give it a look....

David,

Please email me at PTConsultingNHR@aol.com, OK? I'd like to talk to you about this new set and the Eduard set.

Thanks,

Garth

You've got a question, I've got an answer.

Took a look at it and it seems to be REALLY GOOD. Didn't see a price or an absolute release date.....

Initial word is January 2008 and an approx price of $160.00. Also there is some word out that Royal Model is releasing a "Big" detail set for the boat. January should be an interesting month for kit upgrades.
