I received my Fine Scale Modeler magazine and they released their list of most wanted kits. Under Ships and boats in 1/72 scale the first most asked for kit is a Higgins PT Boat. There was no category for 1/35. However manufacturers listen to these polls so maybe we'll see a new kit of a Higgins PT sometime in the coming years.

Before you ask I have not heard anything from Italeri about the possibility of another US PT boat subject. As I've said before their marketing department makes these decisions. If you want to see another US PT I suggest dropping them an email from their web site. You might not hear back from them but they do listen.

Hi Dave

I can supply you fiberglass Higgins PT Boat hulls (and many more designs besides) with decks in 1/72nd and 1/35th scales if you wish.
In both cases the armaments and fittings are available in the Elco kits in those scales.

Regards, Christian.

Thanks Christian. For me I'm tied up with the Elco boats and it's going to be many years before I'm done with those and ready to move on. Some of the others may be interested though. Do you have photos of what you've done that you can share with us?

Did I read your post correctly? You have Higgins hulls in 72nd and 35th scale? I'd be interested in either!!!

Microglass has an excellent 1/32nd scale Higgins Hull.
