The new PT-109 from Revell is a lovely kit from the box, but could really do with some extra detail, with one set for it released by Eduard, they have now released the second set.

 

PT-109 Guns and Life Raft set: The set comes in the standard poly sleeve contain a single sheet of relief etched brass. The sheet contains, as the name suggests, parts for the machine guns, Oerlikon and 37mm guns, plus the life raft. But it also contains main other items that will really help detail the model. Firstly the guns, the twin 50 cals and their turrets receive new barrel sleeves which will need to be carefully rolled, new breech plates and cocking handles, ammunition guides, ammunition belts, gunners backrest, rail stops. The 37mm receives a new shell guard, operating handle and splinter shield with additional boxes attached. The Oerlikon is fitted with new ammunition drum faces, sight and gunners back sling.

The life raft will need some careful surgery to remove the moulded details, leaving just the rafts buoyancy tanks. It is then fitted with a new perforated grating and grating ties. It is also fitted with new chocks and tiedown straps. The additional parts in the kit are for the depth charge fuses plates plus replacement racks and straps. The storage boxes receive replacement racks and carrying handles while the fo’c’sle deck is fitted with replacement toe rails, once the moulded items have been carefully removed.

 

Conclusion

Yest more items to super detail what is already a nice kit. Care will need to be taken with the life raft grating and the ties are very thin, but at least this makes them easy to bend. The toe rails also look quite fragile and easily bent out of shape. All in all a very nice and useful little set that will complement the earlier release.
