    This boat kit was started by buyer and passed though many hands until it finally reached me. Before starting I looked at the history of the PT-61. In the middle of WWII it was converted to a gunboat along with PT-59 & PT60.
    Trying to gather information took a long time before being able to start construction (which involved de-construction by the original owner).
    This is a heavy model but runs like the real one would because of all the armor, guns, and ammo on board. Yes, the real PT-61 did have two 40mm Bofors and sixteen 50 caliber BMGs.
    All three motors work, the outer two run through ESCs and the center one has a servo driven switch running forward only on another channel

    Very nice job. Frank would be proud of your effort. He made some great kits. I have one of his 1/16th ELCo's and it runs great. I am sure that you would get some nice comments over on PTboatForum as well.
