I have been looking on the internet trying to find the Italeria #5606 PT Boat crew figures. The only place I can find them is from Amazon but from Japan. I would rather not buy from Japan. Can anyone tell mw where I could find them here in the US.

Every once in awhile a set will show up on e-bay but way over priced. They originally went for $25 from Tower but I have seen them now selling as high as $55. If you don't need them right now, just wait hopefully for a new release from Italeri of the PT 109 crew which should be better for a South Pacific boat anyway.

I'm hopeful for a 109 crew as well, although nothing official. Ebay is the only place I've seen those crew figures.

Ahoy there CJ.

Are you a vet?

Are you a serious modeller?

I might be able to help you out.

Cheers

Peter Tare: Yes I am a PT Vet. I spent 13 months and made 85 patrol missions of Jap held islands aboard PT 242 in the Solomons in 1943 and 1944, Then 9 months at Base 17 in the Philippines till wars end.
No, I am not a serious modeler. However I enjoy PT models for my son and granddaughters and I have put together 2-Dumas kits with armament similar to our PT 242 also the Italeria PT 596 kit and recently finished the new Italeria PT 109. I want these crewmembers for one of my Dumas boats. The scale is slightly different but they look OK to me. I have a M.A.S. crew which has the 2 officers.
