WORTHY successors to the graceful wooden PTs of World War 11, the new all‑aluminum PT boats are larger,have much heavier armament and employ special welding and riveting construction methods.
By "guesstimation" a fairly accurate replica has been built, brat the exact dimensions are still a Navy secret. Scale is about 3/8” the foot; length of the model is 30 in.The hull is built with plywood frames, hard balsa stringers, plywood planking and block balsa bow. All superstructure is block and sheet balsa to keep topside weight to a minimum. The low position of the engine and batteries in the hull makes for very stable riding. Power plant is the 0 & R.29 marine engine; an 0 & R coupling shaft and a 2 in. diameter with a 2 in. pitch propeller are used. Speed is judged to be about 15 mph.
