The PT Torpedo Boats of WWII were a new idea at the time. The boats were built of plywood, so they could be manufactured quickly,and repaired even faster.

They used 3 Packard V12 engines for more than 300+ horsepower. They were designed to to speed in on ships, fire their torpedoes and then high tail it out of harms way. All the while taking flak and gun fire while engaging with the targets.

There have been several scale models of the PT boats, the Elco type. But the one from Italeri is the most accurate. The crew of the PT 109 had fastened a deck gun to the bow on their own, and it was not originally part of the boats armament. The Italeri PT 109 accurately protrays this hasty modification.

Other countries had similar fast attack boats during the war, but the the American PT series are probably the most famous and well known to the public.

Italeri makes several 1:35 scale attach boats. The German S100 is one of the largest scale plastic models ever made by a model company.

PT-Boats (Torpedo Boats) are some of the most popular subjects when it comes to boat models. Made famous by Kennedy's PT109 service in WWII, these boats were high powered (3 Packard V12's !) and attacked shipping and protected our ships during the war. Other countries built similar boats, from the Italian MAS to the Germans Schnellboots.
