Hi Bob,

The photo at the beginning of the post would that have been taken at Annapolis by any chance?

It appears to have been taken there.

Also would you have any other views, Side, Stern, as one of our other members, Igor was looking for photos of the 400 series Boats?

Yours,

D.buck

Ted,

The extra heads I ordered are Hornet heads, although I choose not to use the ones with the white hats. There are 10 showing the heads as WWII or 1940's haircuts. I want to depict the crew with no hats on, and we can add helmets to a few if we choose. Finding Life-jackets for the boat is a pain as well.

Thanks Bob, will do.

Frank talking about heads in Bobs update post the photo of the 240 has an Officer that if you could replicate would cut quite a sight on a model ( could one call this a young MacArthur look?)

O'well in for a penny in for a pound as they say.

But it would be different!!

Ahoy there Frank.

There's a very good reason that so much German stuff has been kitted in styrene. It's simply because the Germans fought everywhere and thus no matter what nation a modeller is in there is a market for German figures and vehicles.

Master Box has already some fantastic styrene figures. They are VERY open to suggestions for figures. You can contact Alex at mb_ltd@ukr.net
They even have a set of four figures with a WW2 USN officer, an enlisted sailor with your choice of a monkey or a parrot, and two USN Waves.

Set is here: http://www.mbltd.info/3556.htm

They have other femals figures in other sets.

Cheers from Peter

Ahoy there.

When italeri released their Vosper MTB kit I was very disappointed that it wasn't the variant that Airfix has in 1/72 scale. Even the Revell type Vosper would have been welcomed by me.

Hopefully they'll release another WW2 Vosper type, a 77' Elco and a Higgins in the not too distant future.

Cheers from Peter

Thanks Bob, that was the series that the PT 728 came from I suppose.

It appears Frank that Peter is suggesting that a PT Boat model with an all female crew could be an interesting project for Stan, but then if that's what available why not!!

Peter just quietly plants the gem of an idea, beware Frank!!!

Ahhh its one of those days!!!

Frank;
That is the same way I am going with my Miami diorama, just hair, no hats. I for one am of the same mind they were back in the 1940's, other than official purposes, I will find any reason to take off my white hat. So my guys will be showing their hair.
Take care,
TED

Ahoy there David.

An all female crew on an all pink PT boat "Operation Petticoat #2" would be a cool what if scene.

Cheers
