An Italian friend and colleague just announced that Italeri has cancelled its proposed 1/35 scale kit of the Higgins. No further info was passed on other than he learned of it through their Italian distributor.

Well in that case, I won't be holding my breath for a 77' Elco, GRRRRR!

Sucky sucky... I suppose we could just sharpen one end of the box their Elco kit comes in as a substitute. (thanks Ted!)

Well it’s not April 1st so this is terrible news! Are we sure it just wasn’t postponed? I was really looking forward to this one since I found out my uncle was on PT 282. Guess I need to start thinking about plan B. At least we still have this forum to learn from, BIG THANKS to Dick and Jeff!


Thanks!
Jeff

Well, that was a kick in the gut! And yes, sadly no 77 footer!

Thanks Jeff H, but this forum is all Dick. All I do is fix an occasional link or image, or remove a duplicate post. Much of what Dick does we don't even see like fighting the constant battle against spammers and hackers. And then he writes a check to the web host, domain name service, government archives for PT drawings... He also helps others preserving PT history like the PT 658 group out of Portland, the PT 305 group out of New Orleans, Battleship Cove, and PT Boats Inc.. What a guy!

Well it's 2020, everything is cancelled, what did you expect. Thank you China. This has to be the best concieved attack ever undertaken in the history of the planet and with plausible deniability to boot. That's All.
