I saw this photo online and it seems that PT109 has been operating all this time up in Wisconsin! I thought you might want to go see it as well! Jerry

Ahoy there.

Ah, I think someone there has used just a smidgen of artistic licence creating that boat. ROTFLMAO!

Can you imagine if it were operable and they fired a torpedo? Actually with those tubes up top like that I think the boat would capsize if they and the torpedoes were real.

That boat is even less accurated than the 1/32 scale Lindberg kit.

Cheers from Peter

I suppose any publicity is better than no publicity in keeping the memory of the PT boats alive...
(Lets be honest, it's really only slightly less accurate than the Lindberg 1/32 kit...)

Looks to me like a Huckins, oh wait a minute it can't be, it's better looking than a Huckins.
