Topic: Elco 77' Cutaway Drawing
http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?cid=101&fid=102&tid=3141



Yes, yes, yes, I'm still working on the Elco 77' cutaway and I know it seem like an eternity! Currently I'm working on the engine room, but the Elco 77' engineering from the microfilm is very spars, particular in this compartment. I'm wondering if anyone has photos showing more or less the equipment located near the forward bulkhead specially on the port side. Between the microfilm drawings and the five or so great engine room photos from Gene's PT-King website, I've been able to locate and draw what can bee seen in the image below. Any plumbing/water/sea/oil diagrams would be helpful.

Thanks,
Dick . . .

Hey Dick. I'm looking for plans for a 1/35 scale '77 boat. What and where are the best ones. I'm mainlly looking for the exterior. I'll do all you guys a favor, I don't trust Italeri comming out with one any time soon, So I figure if I build one from scrach someone will come out with one a week later.

Wow Dick, that is beautiful. What an incredible amount of detail... That will make a great wall poster!

Bob . . .

I second Waynes suggestion about AL's drawings. They are intended for modelers. Maybe Al will butt-in on this conversation and make a suggestion. Otherwise click this link for his Costal Forces site [url]http://www.coastalforcesplans.com/index.html[/url]
