OK, folks, the May issue of Fine Scale Modeler is out and it contains the annual Most Wanted Kits article. Check this out and then go to :

http://www.finescale.com/

To vote your preferences. I voted for a new 1/72 scale PT-103 and a 1/35 scale PT-103 (a very possible issue for Italeri). A new Higgins in any scale would also be nice. Speak now or hold your peace.

High Tides!

I suggested a late ware PT in 1/72. A 103 class in 1/35.

Also suggested...

110' Sub Chaser in 1/35 or 1/72 as well as a Butler Class Destroyer in 1/144. God bless the destroyers Tabberer and Sammy B.

What we need is a 1/35 77- Foot Elco...I'd even take a 1/72 scale.

Just put my order in for an Italeri 1/35 103 Class and a Higigins PT Boat as well. Wouldn't that be nice if they came out with a HIGGINS PT BOAT in 1/35 scale.

I wish they would make a 1/35 scale of the 70ft and 77ft.

I voted for a 1/72nd 77' Elco and a 1/35th PT 103-class 80' Elco.

It would be neat to see a 1/35th scale 77' Elco, too.

A 70' Elco? Naah. Important to PT history, to be sure, but -- didn't fight in combat.

Sorry, Higgins (or Vosper) fans.

Well,....you might want to qualify that. They saw a great deal of combat with the RN as the 10th MTB in the Med.

I'm not sure if you've seen it but Roberto Reale is the feature builder in Military Miniature Review No. 50 with his 1/35 PT-96. The headline is "Party with your PT!" whatever that's supposed to mean. But it is an excellent 2 part article on building this boat with his upgrades. He's really done a beautiful job. Perhaps this will keep the PT Boat enthusiasm strong or strong enough to support more kits. Time will tell.

Sorry, Dr. Ross (and RN 70' Elco MTB crewmen and fans) -- I stand corrected. Certainly didn't mean to disrespect the 70' Elcos. I must have thought, but didn't specify, "U.S." combat.
