Awesome! Should not take me much to create a 486 class boat from that version! Then I can use the hull of my 109 model to make the 1954 arrangement of the "Sightseer".

Thanks for posting this, Jeff, but...

Oh, no -- another "split" hull, bow insert and separate transom.

I wonder if the deck of this kit would fit on the old Revell 80' Elco kit hull?

Companies are spending money to tool these kits but I wonder when someone will come out with the Elco 77 Foot PT BOAT, a kit that I know would be an instant hit with us PT GUYS, and probably sell more than a late war Elco.

Looks to be a great kit. I still haven't found the "New PT 109 : kit here in Rome Ga. Hope to see this new kit. Thanks for posting.

I agree with Mr. Andress, a 77' boat would be great build.
