The Revell kit is a reissue of the 6384 from the Italeri, but fortunately with more attractive color schemes. While Italeri offer it in two Olive Drab schemes, Revell kit is molded in three Ocean Grey schemes and one Olive Drab, each one with different options of decals.
The complete serie of LVT(s) had a complex evolution, with many versions called in different ways. It’s essential to gather good reference material not to make mistakes; I believe this will be the key to improve your model.
So, here you have the bibliography I researched:
Fred Crismon - US Military Tracked Vehicles (Motorbooks International)
Steve Zaloga - US Amtracs and Amphibians at War 1941-45 (Concord)
Steve Zaloga - Amtracs: US Amphibious Assault Vehicles (Osprey)
Jim Mesko - US Amtracks in Action (Squadron/Signal)

You’ll get a late model, just by making a few corrections and modifications.
