  1. Cool build! I loved that show when I was a kid and still watch it on one of the retro cable channels when it airs. I got to see the PT-73 on a tour of Universal Studios sometime last century… 🙂

  5. Nice build. Can your friend do another set of PT 73 decals ? I’m working on a pair of Revell 1/72 Vospers. I’m building the 73 and the 116 From McHale’s Navy and I have no source for decals.
    Thanks. Mike

  6. Mike R, I’m starting to build my old Revell PT 73 from the TV show and I’m gathering all the various items I’ll need to build it. Where did you get the tripod to support the front deck 50 cal gun?
