PT-117

October 11, 2017 in Ships

Model is Revell 1/72 scale PT-109 that I painted and lettered for USS PT-117 in her 1942 color scheme.
Here’s another shot of the port quarter.
This is the 37mm anti-tank gun JFK had lashed temporarily to PT-109’s deck. I did paint the gun Olive Drab since it was “borrowed” from the Army. Since I took the picture I have the gun “lashed” to the deck.
Picture 7 is the boat used in the movie PT-109. It was originally a USAF rescue boat that the studio modified to look like an 80′ ELCO. Never knew there was “GULF” station in Rendova.
