Jeff Davidson encouraged me to post my build of PT 34 to the forum. Specifically calling out the source of the components:

The hull is from Christian Capurro
The superstructure was a 3D print of a design done by Dave Flynn
50 cal mounts are 3D print from a design done by Luis Holden
Running gear, more stuff from Luis Holden
30 cal Lewis guns are resin from GasPatch
Vents are resin from CKM
Torpedo tubes are 3D print from Model Monkey, Scott Larsen
Running lights are 3D print from Jeff
Cradlle is 3D print from Sasha at deStephan
Toe rails are 3D print from Jeff
Periodic curse words were of my own making

Good job. I need one of these (PT-35) to go along with Ron 3 artifacts sent to me from Francis Napolillo who served on the 35.

Very nice Bill! Sure is a shame that there's not a kit of these earlier Elco's... but you didn't let that stop you and put together a "kit" of your own. Thanks for posting the parts sources, that will be handy for those wishing to put one together too.

I forgot a few bits...

The deck vents and hatches where my own 3D design, printed by Shapeways

The mooring bits and hatch handles where from the Coastal Forces PE fret for the BPB 70' MGB. The chocks are resin parts from the same kit

The deadlites are from the White Ensign model PE fret for the PT 109 kit

The engine room vents are resin from CMK

I love the 77 footers. Thanks for posting! Now, if we can just get one in 1/35 scale?

Great model of the 34, Bill!

I wish there were 1/72nd (and 1/35th scale) models of the 1st & 2nd series 77' Elcos, with extra parts to make a PT 59/60/61 gunboat.
