Well the plastic arived today so I started the laminating process, and it's working great. The deck is V-grove, that'll save a lot of scribingl. I'll have a plastic boat before long.

Wow! That is really a great idea! That I never thought of!. All that Evergreen Plastic sheet that seems to sit forever in my local Hobbytown store. Maybe I will use...."borrow" your idea on my PT 308 model, which is temoparily sitting on the shelf until I finish my RON 40/Miami diorama.
Thanks!
Take care,
TED

Bob,

I like the way you've moved the depth charges further aft on your Italeri PT 109 build...to my eye, that's where they more appropriately belong.

I love it every time Bob posts photos of the build. PT-302 will take it's rightful place in "The Mosquito Fleet Exhibit", thanks to Bob's generosity.............

Great job Bob, she is really starting to take shape. I am going to be very proud to have this boat in my Exhibit, and I know Arthur Frongello will love it too............

Bob,
It looks like you're building the prototype for Italeri's next project!

Calm down Frank!
