I'm not certain many forum members saw this post elsewhere, so I thought I'd start a new thread paying homage to two of our members.

Here's a link to a 1/350 PT boat by the extremely talented and regulation-issue good guy Chuck Bauer.

He has depicted PT-34, the boat whose crew included Quartermaster 1/c Albert P. Ross, shown on the model manning the bow machine gun. This gentleman went on to sire some sort of a son who dabbles in the trade......

To give you an idea of how small this model actually is, here's a (lousy) scan of the actual hull and a quarter

Thanks gentlemen. It helped to have input from both of you and the other Forum members who answered my questions.

If I could have figured out how to do so I would have posted it here as well as my usual haunt, Model Warships.

I did mention this Forum and its members in my MW article, and they did put in a link to this website.

None of their members have commented on the model, which I thought was unusual. Not so much because of the model itself but about the story behind it. But I suppose if they click on the link to PT Boat Forum they can find out more.


In real life the model is a fly speck compared to the masterpieces that are built in larger more typical modeling scales. I do enjoy all the fine work that has been done with these wonderful subjects.

Can't wait to see the next update from Master Steinbrunn and ultimately, the finished product.
