Thanks everyone and Thank you Denny. It's my honor and privilege. I'm giving a presentation on the build Saturday. Let's figure a time when I can come out and meet the two of you.

I'm adding some crates to the LCM. I thought they looked a little bare. I would like to enter it in the IPMS Nationals next Summer as well. I'm not sure if it's worthy but I'd like to give it a shot.

Back to the 105.

Some exciting news today. I talked to Denny White who has adopted Mr. Frank at the VA Retirement Home. He told me that the Navy is awarding Mr. Frank with some medals that he earned but were never awarded. Apparently the local media will be there as well. I'll be bringing the diorama for sure. Some more good news. They have a nice display case that I can place the diorama into for Mr. Frank to enjoy and talk to his friends about his service.
I'm looking forward to meeting Mr. Frank and his family.
Dave

This is wonderful News, and I would bet will make Mr. Franks one of the happiest guys around. It is always a thrill when you can do something like this for the PT BOAT VETERANS. This is why I did our PT-374 Memorial project, to honor Wallace McNeish, PT-108/Sub project to honor Earl Richmond, and FEMU Barge to honor Al Moore. Just a great feeling when you can do this. Happy for you Dave...........

Dave and Denny;
OUTSTANDING JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your reward is exactly what I felt, when I sent Ken Prescott photos of my model: PT 48. Also what I felt making my RON 29 and RON 22 Bastia Diorama, and getting feedback from Vern Peak(Exec of PT 308). Your Diorama represents the PT 505 getting towed to the beach for repairs.
Now as Frank said, try one in 1/72nd scale, with "PORTLAND OR BUST" painted on the side and PT505(LT William C. Godfrey) being towed by PT 500(LT. Douglas S. Kennedy) back to Portland on June 11th, for major repair.
Just an Idea.
Take care,
TED

Easy Ted! My priority right now is finishing up the PT-105 model. I'm also waiting on parts so I can finish up another 1:350 project inspired by Jerry Gilmartin. I'm waiting on the manufacturer to supply some kits and photo etch.

As for the 1/72 Revell kit, I'm done with that one. Revell hinted at remaking that kit and I wouldn't be surprised to see them do that, much as they did with their old 1/72 B-17F kit. It's been one of their all time best sellers. If they do a good job on it, well... maybe I'll take another crack at that scale. I'm more excited about the 1:35 Italeri kits though.

Thanks for the feedback Ted. I'm really looking forward to the presentation in a little over a week and between Denny and me I'm hoping we can get some photos posted to share with you.

David;
I really hope so, you two with Mr. Franks and the diorama would be great!

I'm waiting on the manufacturer to supply some kits and photo etch.

Tell me how I can get in on this, e-mail me at LTWALTHER2@aol.com
