Tim;

 Maybe you don't remember me . I was the fellow that told you about the " Tulagi Terror " and I didn't have any pictures . This boat is so close I think you snuck in my brain to get some of the details . She's very close to the  "Terror"

      With all those guns and all I would swear at first glance it was her .  Tanker - Builder

Yes, I remember you quite well.  I took a lot of flak for my support of your statement.  And, I've got to say, sir; from my research into what you've said, and what I have been told by other people, I hate to tell you sir, I do not believe the Tulagi Terror was a PT.  I am sorry.

Today, I went to Stan’s to pick up my model of PT-191. I am very impressed with the finished model. Stan truly did an excellent job on it. I feel that it is one of his best efforts. To give me what I wanted; a PT-191 as she appeared in 1944/45, when RON 12 was station in the Philippines, Stan took the following from 1:48 Merit’s late-war Elco 80-footer PT kit: The 40mm, M3 Bofors gun Two 20mm Oerlikon guns on Mark XIV mounts Four ready-service lockers The cradle for the SO-radar And the following parts ordered from www.shapeways.com: A 37mm M4 on a Mark XIV mount A twin .50-cal machine gun (which the 191 had field-mounted forward of her starboard forward torpedo rack) A SO-radar mast and dome The Depth charges The mufflers And, combined them with Merit’s early-war Elco 80-footer PT kit. The model is depicted in Measure 31/5P. The paints came from AK INTERACTIVE, via Merit (and Tony Chin). The 48-star flag is from AMP and the decals were especially-created for me by Mark from STARFIGHTER DECALS. Here are some photos:    Tim
