    I am not sure where to start or how to best present all this other than taking a break from my efforts to scratch build a WWII minesweeper trawler off an old Robbie hull of the Wontan โ€ฆ(sp?) . Going over the same grounds as others have done and needing a breather I converted the 1/35 scale PT 596 by Italeri to a fair representation of PT 174 .This involved cutting cabin and other modifications that would have been easier if I had the PT 109 kit โ€ฆbut it was an enjoyable build and even better runner. I owe much to the experience I got from building and later correcting my errors in the placement of the Vosperโ€™s running gear. Even tho they are a joy to run at the pond , my corrections to trim make them that much more a pleasure.

    The forward gun is a work of someone who knows what they are doing. We had better be careful to not cross your bow ๐Ÿ™ƒ
