Added the foot rails, had to soak & heat bend them into place, always run the risk of snapping or splintering long single pieces when shaping the curve. luckily I took it slow and easy, they turned out the way it should. Thanks again Stu, When I started this build I knew nothing about PTs ( still don’t know much, but learning) All I knew I was fascinated by the boats and there crews, that has evolved into being horribly hooked, Jeff D said I was joining the nut club. Also attempted to round off the starboard Aft corner of the day cabin, not to sure how much it needs.
Thanks for all the support
Mike

The edge rounding of the day cabin stbd aft corner is hard to see in photos. It took me a while to verify exactly where this F-F section view was showing:

You can see the early tube training gear in a few images here: http://www.pt103.com/PT_Boat_Components_Torpedo_Tube_Images_Elco.html The PT 107 view from the fwd deck should be of help. It shows this bracket from Al's torpedo tube drawings well:

Thanks Jeff, the gear box looks pretty straight forward to make, The day cabin aft corner curve looks to be a slight round at the roof corner ???
your right it does not really stand out much so easy to miss.
again thanks Mike

It's mostly just on the straight vertical part and ends / blends in before it reaches the aft roof molding:

Hey Mike, Dick rescued a good discussion we had about the torpedo tubes and fixed all the broken images (thanks PHOTOBUCKET). There's some good info on the earlier parts like what the 105 had: http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?fid=102&cid=101&tid=3708&st=0&nd=10&pg=1&sc=20.

Jeff , hope all is well your way
Anyway 2 questions, the 20mm did the early boats use the spent cartridge bag , and or the gunners belt ? can find pics of the 20mm in trials, training , but not many pics of the aft section in theatre. 2. The 77 training gear box , guessing here but it looks like it did not set on the rail pad ?
Once again your help is always appreciated .
Mike

I do not have an answer for your 20mm question but here's some shots of the early 80 Elco training gear, the type without the right angle adapter. It's hard to see the little spuds in photos especially for the aft tubes:

For comparison, PT 149 with the right angle adapter:

The refueling at sea operation looked like a tricky, dangerous business.
