My recently completed Revell 1/72 PT Boat (PT-579/PT-588).
I have done this as PT-588.
Safety rope and rope holders are added using pins, copper wire and thin rigging thread as these are not supplied in the kit.
One coil of rope to be put on the deck at the bow.
Paints used are Halfords primer red for the lower hull, Vallejo Model Air Bronze Green for the deck, a mixture of Vallejo Model color grey green and bronze green and Vallejo model air green and black for the side and rear camouflage. Props done in Vallejo model color brass.
Flag decal not used as I made a 48 star flag using printer paper, gloss varnished it, cut out and bent to look like it is in a wind. Folded and glued into place using white glue.
All the front and rear cabin windows have been done using white glue in place of the clear plastic ones that came with the kit.
