Do any of you guys have any shots of PT-331. I have a few, but I am interested in the art work that was on the chart house. I would like to have Stan paint this on the chart house of my PT-331 project. He doesn't know this yet, so shhh don't tell him. Looks like Santa might be sending me a couple of Italeri boats, so you guessed it, another project. This of course, after PT-66 is done. Stan said he would be 85 by the time I get done with all the projects I have lined up for him.......................

Frank-

Good to hear that you will be keeping Stan busy down the road with model PT Boat projects. Here are three shots I have of PT 331's wolf-related artwork on the front of the charthouse. Hope these help.

Thanks Buddy. I already have these shots, but I appreciate them just the same. I am also looking for a close up of the nude gal on the left side of the chart house, and the basic layout of the boat and what she had for weapons.

Thanks Jerry, that's a later shot (notice the rocket launchers) she carries. We will do her a bit earlier, but every photo counts. Wish I could get a close up of that nude gal on the chart house. Will sent me a nice shot of the Wolf she carries on the chart house, now just a layout of the boats weapons she carried would be nice, and any camo colors.

Here are two earlier shots showing the camouflage pattern and slightly different armament configurations.

Don't know about the Leyte shot, but it looks like she was WOLF in all of the others. I think she had at least five names during her lifetime.

PT-331 deck mounted twin 50 changed locations at least three times and ended up on the port side between fore and aft torpedoes during the time period of Alex's second picture.



Bow pipe mounted 37mm on 331

Thanks for the updated photos on PT-331, although I have decided to have PT-559 from Ron 29 made instead,. I guess i just can't make up my mind these days. So it's PT-66 first, than PT-559 with the Thunderbolt system...........Whats next?

GREAT SHOTS OF PT 331!
Tamiya had a useable "Woif" in thier M4A1 Sherman model.

Frank, since you are going with PT 559 RON 29 instead, PT 559 had the RON 29 logo painted on the cockpit spray shields port and stbd.

Hell, Frank, why not keep Stan busy until Easter and ask him to make both models!!
Take care.
