Just so you guys know, Bob is one incredible modeler and a real nice person, so treat him right! Bob is building the BlueJacket kit of the 80' that I designed about 20 years ago.

Aw, gee Al, now yer embarassin' me. (grin) When I visited you at BlueJacket years ago and you were kind enough to conduct a tour of the PT kit you were designing I thought as good as the prototype looks, the kit would have to be remarkable.

I thought the kit deserved time, care, and appreciation and would have to wait for retirement in order to do it proud.

That day is here! Retirement is great! With the possible exception that I'm busier now than when I was flying. (I know....I know....all retirees say that....)

Question: Do you have any plans or drawings in your Coastal Forces series of plans of the underhull fittings, scoops, and outlets? If not, would I find illustrations of these on Dick Washichek's DVDs sold through PT Boats, Inc.?


Cheers!

I haven't decided on a particular boat yet, Jeff, but I'm inclined to go with 187, 188, or 189.

Thanks Dave, but I don't have much to show as of yet since I've just started on the hull.

If I may be forgiven for posting a non-PT photo, here's a sample of a previous project. It's BlueJacket Ship Crafters' 1/192 Fletcher-class destroyer USS Kidd. Many thanks - once again - to Al Ross for answering a myriad of questions and providing help during this 4 1/2 year project which consumed 2025 hours and is comprised of some 14,228 parts & pieces.







Thanks to Al's help and advice, and from other forums and DD enthusiasts, the model was lucky enough to win a gold medal, the US Navy award, and the best in show award at the 2000 model ship competition at the Mariner's Museum in Newport News.

It really couldn't be done without help from fine folks like all of you who are so willing to give of their time and expertise.

Cheers!
