Guys;
There is a part that is placed in the model on the "floor" of the Port .50 cal turret. Is this the Sound power phone jack for the turret? If it is I can just use it as a master.
Thanks again for all your help.
Take care,
TED

Sorry Ted, I don't have that model. Does it look like the device seen in the "inside the machine gun turret" photo found in the book American PT Boats In WW2?

After digging through the Elco drawings, I'd guess you are right Ted if it is the device seen in the photo.

Jeff;
I looked at Victors book, yes that is what I am looking at on the model! Lokking at the photo, yes that is a sound powered phone connection.
Thanks!
Take care,

Cool Ted, sounds like you're going above and beyond on this project. I'm looking forward to seeing it finished.
