Hi guys, I thought I would share some of the drawings I've been doing.

Shown are two Ron 29 boats, one with the Thunderbolt mount, one with a 40mm, ... one of the 191 in 1945, an Elco PTGB, a Higgins PTGB, three Higgins ...

I put them together and colorized them by using various PT drawing components Dick provided me with ... I assemble the components in the configuration I'm working on then add some of my own items, if needed, like the Thunderbolt and add color as needed.

I just wanted to share them and I realizes that there may be inaccuracies but I'm proud of my accomplishments ..........

Thanks, I know that they're perfect, but I did strive to get them as accurate as I could, but I'm certainly no artist and could never protray myself as one, but I tried.

My favorite is the 191 as she looked in late-44 into 1945.

I would like to think I NAILED that one .....

Well, the one on the Ron 29 boats and the 191 and on that first 77 footer are as close to the ones on the real boats as I could get.

The rest were done just to see if my hand could manulipate (sp?) the mouse well enough ...

The gray Higgins ones was what an English Channel based Higgins would looked like in my mind.

I'm sure it's incorrect.

Hey Garth-

The drawing are great! Perhaps you would like to take up a challenge? How about a RON-10 boat in zebra stripe camo?

I know that a lot of guys absolutely "hate" that measure, but there are others like myself that find the RON-10 boats very unique to the history of the Mosquito Fleet!

Can we see a RON-10 sketch from you in the near future? It would be kind of neat!

Thanks, Garth!
