Although nothing to do with PT BOATS, I stopped at Stan Pienkowski's house on Sunday for a visit. I knew he was working on a 6 foot model of the USS. Leyte Gulf, for a customer. I had not seen the Ship for a few weeks, and I was blown away. The Ship, although not completed is breathtaking in person. Good thing I brought along my Camera. I thought I would share some photos with you guys. Can you imagine having a 6 foot ELCO PT BOAT done by Stan. My brain is flashing that site before me . . . . . .

I think so Will. I wish I had a fraction of Stan's ability to work with Wood and blue-prints. I don't think there is anything he can't build............

I hope you don't mind, I sent your pictures to a sailor and his mom. He serves on the CG55. The mom e-mailed me and said that it looked amazing. She has been on board the ship and she was very impressed.

Scott:
I am glad that you did pass the photos along. I am sure Stan would be very interested in hearing from those people you mentioned............
