Well, I think I'm finished with the engine room. Thanks for the responses to my questions about it. Here are a few pictures. I hope this works. Also, I really need
to get a better camera.

Thanks for looking,

GregB

AWSOME! That really looks great and to think it's only 1/72 scale and not 1/35 or 1/32 scale. You can now probably do micro surgery too.

Very well done.

Cheers from Peter

Wow!

This is the first scale-modeled PT boat engine room I've ever seen -- great job!

Nice, nice and...NICE!

With all the new info from Washichek's DVD of ELCO blueprints I expect to see a lot more interiors such as this!

Thanks everyone.

However, I have realized that the engine room is not finished. I forgot to put in the gear shifters? I don't know what they are called but they look like a long gear shifter. The pictures I have show one on the starboard engine and center engine but I don't see one on the port engine. Does the port engine have one?

Thanks again.

GregB
