Jeff,

Would 1/96th scale be approximately the same as the small Hawk/Testors 80' Elco kits? If so, a nice Tulagi scene could be made with a mixture of these boats and the Hawk/Testors 80' Elcos.

Pretty pricey, though...

I do not know Drew and drew a blank Googling it.

Yes and the reasonably compact size would make a great Tulagi diorama!

As I remember, the old Hawk kits were more like N scale, maybe 6" or less long.
