I joined ptboats.org in March of 2008. Unless I'm crazy, I believe that somebody was building the 1/35th PT 596 into an earlier PT, MAYBE PT 328??? I checked EVERY page here back to 2006. Nothing.

Regardless, AM I CRAZY? If there was a series of photos of a PT 328 or so using the Italeri kit and BACKDATING it, please let me know. I have plenty of aftermarket stuff for my kit, but need to know what the heck I'm doing before I start. Regards and thanks in advance.

We just got done doing our PT-374 Memorial project, which was backdated using the Italeri Kit. I had posted many photo's of the build if this is what you are refering to.

Joe,
Fellow that goes by muddyfields back dated the Italeri kit to PT 174. Links to his photos on the message board don't work any more but you can view some of his photos here.

Frank;

I thank you very much for your offer. I am a member of the American Society of Aviation Artists, and always have said that, if I spend 200 hours on an aviation painting, just figure that I've spent AT LEAST the same amount of time on research. Good research is always worth it, and spares you wasted time later.

My e-mail is: papajszady@earthlink.net
