I didn't know the new Revell kit has an interior!! Just wish it was bigger!

From the 1/35 scale Masterpiecemodels Swift Boat kit instructions, that is the radioman's position and that would be the radio set. I was planning on using these instructions as a go by to add an interior to the old Monogram/Revell 1/48 Swift Boat kit someday.

What a great resource, much appreciated!

Yes, it comes with interior, although there is much room for improvement.

I like the kitchen sink, but that "radio" looks more than strange. Maybe I add another or replace it.

The steering compartment (?) is ok as well, as you can see, I added some detail with maps and "girls". ;)

Right to the wheel those two small cubicles look strange, according to the 1/35 instructions they are a small radio and a fathometer. They are way too small in 1/72 and I will try to replace them.

From the interior of PCF-104. Looks like they're actually on bulkhead mounted racks.

Hello Hajo,

Look at that site:
https://coronadotimes.com/news/2017/05/ ... on-patrol/

Found it relevant, although I do not know if the pale green interior color is correct.
If it is, what could be its FS number?

Have you noticed that the US flag provided by Revell might be wrong (48 stars instead of 50)?

Best regards,
domi13

Domi,
Fantastic link! Thank you! I have the old Monogram 1/48th kit that I planned to detail and scratchbuild an interior, but have also purchased the new Revell 1/72nd kit.
