    A 1/200 scale Nimitz, you say? I'm comfortable disclosing here on Hobby Squawk that we are pointed toward bringing in this big beast of a boat this year. Details to follow; as I mentioned in another thread, we're still in the process of adding additional product pages.

    Best part is it's in scale with our 1/200 Missouri and possibly some escort craft down the line, just give us time to update it to bring it in line with our standards.

    I am IN for the pair!

    Who wants to buy my 1/96 Essex and Iowa or trade for the new Bancroft 1/200 versions? Will deliver Pacific NW!

        Early and late Elco 77's in 1:24.
        These were the boats of RON 3 at Manila, and the first ones on the scene in the Solomons. They deserve good models, I'm so sick of seeing PT-109 everywhere.

        The early boats had "notchback" wheelhouses and, prewar, had turret domes. The later boats had a swoopy wheelhouse and often had the cone shaped shields around the twin 50's. A few other differences here and there, but both can be built on the same hull. Drawings are hard to find, but they exist. I have built both styles.

        Early... PT-41, MacArthur's ride out of Manila, but shown as-built:

        And yes, they shipped to theater on those funny cradles!

          I'll second that, Pat! Always loved the look of that Elco.
