Does anyone know if PT Boats were ever transported on the decks of LSTs? I've seen pictures of LCTs being transported in this way; curious if that was ever done with PTs.

Thanks!

Paul

Paul,

I don’t believe PT boats were transported on the decks of an LST. However, if I counted correctly, seven LSTs were converted to PT boat Tenders (AGP). These ships had the lift capacity to place a PT boat on deck for hull maintenance. There are photos of converted LST variants of AGPs lifting PT boats and a few with the boats on deck.

Thanks! Good to know. I'll look for those AGP photos. I have the old Lindberg LST kit sitting in my stash as well as a PT Boat in about the same scale and was trying to think of something interesting to do with them.

I have the dimensions and shape of the 40 mm ammo lockers, but want to make the locker open for business. Were the shelves horizontal in all planes, ie; side to side, and back to front? Or were they tilted downwards towards the front so that the propellant ends of the rounds were higher than the projectile ends?

Not sure if this has been posted anywhere but it appears Revell-Germany is releasing an updated version of their new mold Elco 80 footer. Supposed to be released soon. Link to their website. https://www.revell.de/en/products/model ... pt-57.html

Mike,

If you can sit tight Revell is releasing a late model 80 foot ELCO kit in 1/72 in a couple of months. The kit instructions show the combined engine room hatch and vent, obviously.
