Is everyone familiar with this title? Published by Seaforth Publishing in the UK and Classic Warships Publishing in the US, the ISBN is: 978-1-84832-060-4.

Similar in scope to Allied Coastal Forces by John Lambert and Al Ross II, this title is directed more towards PT boat modelers with a brief history of British & American PT boats, then follows with many pages of plans by John Lambert & Al Ross II, then moves on to the various kits available in various scales (while the BlueJacket 1/48 ELCO kit is conspicuous by its absence), aftermarket accessories, a modelers' section with color photos of completed kits, and a plethora of other neat stuff. Published in 2010, the book arrived before the release of the 1/48 Merit injection-molded kit.

Hard cover with no dust jacket, 128 pages printed on heavy coated stock, heavily illustrated. Recommended!

Anything that Al is/was involved with is bound to be first rate. The same goes for John
