80′ ELCO PT BOAT – BlueJacket Kit #1005
First Series, 1942
John Kennedy’s PT-109 is the one we all remember, but over 800 PT Boats were built. These sleek and deadly wooden boats served in both the Pacific and Atlantic theaters.
This kit, designed by author and model builder, Dr. Al Ross, portrays a typical 1942 80′ Elco PT Boat. Because of the large number of very small parts and the delicate detailing required, this kit is recommended for intermediate to advanced builders. It should be determined in advance whether to use a gray paint scheme (European theater) or green camouflage (Pacific island hopping) because the construction method involves painting each subassembly before putting the whole boat together
