I started doing research over a year ago for this project. I came across this picture and don't remember where. I think I asked somewhere but don't remember where if this was an actual picture and thought someone told me it was from a movie? I don't think it could be the 109 as it has a mast.---John

Hi John,
That's the boat from the movie PT-109. I believe somebody can give you more information about what type of boat this is. In any event, I thought the film makers did a great job with what they had. They looked like Elco boats. If I remember correctly a member of PT-109 participated in the movie and had a small part. I think it was the chief that Pat Robertson dumped the oily water on.

Too funny, although you didn't fool me. I had these photos before in my collection. You should not have said anything at the end, I would have loved to see the feedback on that one.

Yes, the boats in the movie were 85 foot crash boats, and the crew man in the movie was George "Barney" Ross ...

Hah, with quick first looks you had me going for a bit. The tilted turret on the 4th photo gave it away though.

John, I'm looking forward to your pics of your Buckley. I'm working on her now myself, though my build is on hold while I wait for some parts from H-R Productions. As soon as I get them I'll finish mine and post some photos.
