Am I alone in thinking Jeff has so much information on his website, and so many spectacular graphics, that a hard-copy book compilation of this would be a best seller? Certainly among members of this forum.

I believe the material he has would be right up Schiffer Publishing's alley, and I'd bet they'd love to work with him.

Victor Chun has used Schiffer twice for his two books:

http://www.schifferbooks.com/american-pt-boats-in-world-war-ii-volume-two-4714.html

I've had great fun with them for one book.....

http://www.schifferbooks.com/large-scale-armor-modeling-building-a-1-6-scale-stuart-tank-4719.html

The place to start is: http://www.schifferbooks.com/

Book proposal information is here: http://www.schifferbooks.com/index.php?main_page=author_resource

The firm is currently run by Peter Schiffer, the son of the founder, and really, they're a delight to work for.

A successful author will receive royalty checks twice per year based on sales of his/her book. Not a get-rich scheme, mind, but a great venue for seeing your book in print. Great fun, too.

Any one else interested enough to encourage Jeff to do this? I'd buy one! You can never have enough PT books!

Oh, and anyone else with a story to tell might think along the same lines: too many veterans make their final patrol without their story being told.

Cheers!

I grabbed a matchbook and wrote everything I know in it. Who do I submit it to?

Well, to Peter Schiffer, of course! Hurry, hurry, not a minute to lose! My money's burning a hole in my pocket!

Oh, and I don't think you can send matches through the U.S. Mail. You'll have to use Fedex Ground.

Cheers!

Hi Jeff,

Your parts are first rate. More parts are needed. There's alot of books on PT's. Feel like a kid in a candy store. There are finally parts in 1/24th scale and I don't have to make them. Woo Hoo!!!!
