Greetings,
I have a few photos in books and from the web of these boats. I'm interested in seeing if I can find more before I eventually start on my 1/35 Italeri kit.

So two questions...

1. Does anyone have any photos of these boats?
2. Has anyone had experience ordering photos from PT Boats Inc and if so what's the best way to go about doing that?

Thank you
Dave

Call Alyce Guthrie and tell her what you are looking for. If she finds photos, ask her to make you some Zerox copies, and she will mail them out to you. Pick out what you want, send the Zerox's back to her and tell her what size. I usually buy 5x7 because you can get 2 on a page. It's a bit cheaper. I will look to see if I have any photos of what you are looking for.........

David and I have both been trying to make a final decision on which hull number to do and it is really difficult - I want to add my request for photos and info also for the 493 boat. I have been in communication with Donald Brown who is both a member of this Forum and the Son of the boats Skipper during it's short 1 year life - commissioned and sunk 365 days apart. I will follow the thoughts already provided but would ask that when considering David's potential choices that you and 493 to the NEED LOTS OF RESEARCH DATA catagory for me.
Thanks so much
Jerry

I have three or four so-so photos of the 523-525 boats and about a dozen various quality of the 493. I imagine you guys already have all or most of these, but if you want to give me your e-mails, I would be happy to copy you.

Will -

I would be interested in any 523 photos. The only one I've seen is in "At Close Quarters" and it's a partial photo.

Thanks

Bob
