Hey fellows,


I just finished running my 221 Boat. She ran nicely and got up on plane like the real one. I added the new photos to my already existing ones. I also added a dozen or so old photos of my Dad with his real PT-221 and his 1960's model of the 221. I added more subtitles.I now have quite a few photos and growing. The photos from today are of poor quality. I'm sorry and I will be taking more in the near future. If this works right,you can just click on the site.If it doesn't, just copy and paste it to open. Enjoy, and please let me know what you think. The pictures are not in order, but are subtitled.

Greg

Greg:
Very nice job. It is always a thrill to view someone's work. The boats look super in the water and look to be running true to form. Thanks for sharing the pictures.............

Ed,


I am sorry. I forgot your first name on the previous reply. How is your PT coming along by the way?

Greg

I have started coating it with Future and have just about completed weathering the torpedoes, cabin and deck house. I still need to fabricate the compass that was on the capin roof. I'm looking for photos to try to get a better idea what it looked like.

I also need to make the "Gentleman Jim" plaque.

This is the slow boring part but it also means the end is near.

Ed,



It sounds wonderful and sounds like you are putting a heavy amount of detail on it. Good for you and am looking forward to seeing the completed boat.

Greg
