Many photos show differing gun suppressor rails on the 50 caliber gun turrets. Does anyone have blue prints of what the rails look like for for Elco boats.

If you're talking about drawings for the Elco 80', be careful using them Frank. The drawing for PT 103-196 and 314-367 states "all dimensions approximate - stop to be made from templates". I found this to be true, there were some obvious differences compared to photos, and spent many hours tweaking to photos. That said, the DVD drawing is pretty clear and good for the basic limiting stops. Just be sure to check against photos of the boat you are modeling.

I have a couple of shots of boats with NO limit stops. I always figured they had cams of some kind. I have also always wondered how many friendly fire incidents there were during the heat of battle with all of those free-swinging deck guns.

Frank,

Jeff's "PT 103" site, with his fantastic CAD drawings and diagrams, is your best source as of now...
