Gravman,

I hope you are going to put this model under glass for viewing. As much detail that your adding, it'd be a shame to put her on the water. Really GREAT work !!

Grav, I fully expect to see an operating radar scope on the IP of your PT boat.

K thanks very much but I am afraid I am making most of this stuff up as I go. I have no idea what is really true from the old photos. If anyone asks we will just call it "Field Mods" and leave it at that. Next will be the football looking thing at the top of the mast. I am going to turn a master for the body and try and make a hollow casting.

That's it. I knew it was something. I just could not put a finger on it. It is bad to be old and slipping gears.

I recently stumbled upon this build. I normally follow airplane builds. This is so impressive. You are doing an amazing job.
