I was trolling around ebay and ran across this POS. What set me off is the claim "Our craftsmen followed official reference plans to construct this fully detailed vessels". It doesn't even have turrets...

I must say that's pretty pathetic. Anyone in their right mind that knows anything about PT BOATS wouldn't give ten cents for this thing.

I think they followed those "Fully detailed plans" that were written upside down in chinese. THis model may be bad, but I still think the Revell model of PT212 is worse. Except they only charge $15 for the PT212! Hah Hah. Jerry

If you think this is bad, check out the Diorama in the PT BOATS section on Ebay. You'll laugh at the opening bid and buy it now price.

Just go to ebay and put in 251076031420 in the search engine. You won't believe what a turd this thing is, and the opening bid is $175.00. I think someone should give him $175.00 to take it off of ebay, it's that bad.
