Anyone remember these four boats, all based on the PT-212 hull?

Will, I am only familiar with the first boat as I have several of them in a box. I have no clue what the others are, never seen them before. Are they in your collection Will.................

Hi Will,
Thanks for posting these pics. I am amazed that Revell took the incredibly crappy model of PT212 and made it four times as bad, in four different versions no less! I have to laugh every time I look at my little 1:199 scale "Revell PT212" model and all of the glaring mistakes they made when compared to the real thing. I am only guessing their rendition of those other 3 boats was equally as pitiful. Do you have any feelings about if they are close to any sort of accuracy on the other 3 boats? I still think it is pretty cool that you have all 4 of them! Sorry for venting. Jerry

Hi Jerry - I think they follow the general outlines of the real boats, but are no more accurate than the 212. Just starting with that hull is a handicap right off the bat......

Although totally wrong, it's nice to have all of them, historically speaking.........
