I saw a picture of a model of PT 18, Elco 70 footer by Mike Salzano.
Can someone give me some information about its scale, builder, and
where is it on display. It is the best model I have ever seen.

I remember that boat. Someone had sent me photos of her a while back. If I recall most of that boat was scratch built, except the hull, which was a reworked Air Sea Rescue Hull. He had one big mistake, in that he added 2 Lewis guns to the bow, and I think the paint scheme may have been wrong. I do not have those shots anymore on my Computer, and I do not know where the boat curently is.........

Victor,

That model was a complete REWORKING of the Airfix RAF ASRL ... he scratchbuilt EVERYTHING ... and he lengthened the hull too ...

I have his email, do you want me to ask him if you could contact him?

I'll ask him if I can give you his email address Victor and I don't know where the model is ... but I THINK it's a personal model.
