Great piece of info, Bob! Interestingly, this emblem appears on the Higgins drawings for HELLCAT. Having the actual colors available is very, very useful.

The plaque is not mine. I was told that it was taken off the boat. I dont know where it was on the boat though.

Bob;
That plaque is awesome! It sort of reminds me of some of the unit emblems out there today.

Al;
I know its not close, but, it is the only attempt at a Higgins Hellcat model, that I have seen out there in the cybermodeling world. I am sure, know that Frank has seen that emblem, Frank already has the wheels turning, and Stan will be making a model Hellcat very soon.
Take care,
TED

P.S. You can see the plaque mounted on the side of the cabin in the photo that Jerry posted.
Take care,

Ted

Are you kidding, here is the list of what I need built that Stan is doing:

1. WWII Ride On Toy Restoration
2. PT-66 1/20 scale
3. Blue Devil Destroyer
4. 2 British Rescue Craft
5. Huckins PT Boat
6. Resin USS Decatur DD-341
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If I give Stan anything else to do, I know he will probably kill me. Oh, I almost forgot, he has to do that new paper PT-103 model I just bought..................IT NEVER ENDS, although I do need a nice PT-109 model for a contract i just signed, more to come on that.

Thanks Bob, that's an apt image to go with the name Hellcat.

For anyone wanting to be the probably first kid on the block with an accurate Higgins Hellcat model these UNO plans will help: http://www.pt103.com/images/ptpics/higgins/hellcat/PT_564_Higgins_Hellcat_1943.zip.
