80 Ft. Elco PT Boat (BJ-K1005) Length 20″ / Scale 1/4″

John Kennedy’s PT-109 is the one we all remember, but over 800 PT Boats were built. These sleek and deadly wooden boats served in both the Pacific and Atlantic theaters. BlueJacket’s kit is designed by author and model builder Dr. Al Ross, and portrays a typical 1942 – 80′ Elco PT Boat.

This kit is recommended for intermediate to advanced builders.

You should determine in advance whether to use a gray paint scheme for the European theater or green camouflage for Pacific island hopping, because the construction method involves painting each sub-assembly before putting the whole boat together.

This is a solid hull kit with a large number of very small parts, and delicate detailing is required.

It is recommended for intermediate or advanced builders.

Brand

BlueJacket

BlueJacket is one of the leading manufacturers of quality wooden ship model kits. This Maine-based company is perhaps the oldest ship model kit manufacturer, having been in continuous operation since 1905! The company focuses on American subjects. Most kits feature pre-carved solid wood hull, but many kits are laser-cut plank-on-bulkhead and some are even true plank-on-frame kits.

BlueJacket also maintains the Laughing Whale line of kits, which are predominantly small American watercraft. With the demise of Midwest boat kits, these are about the only source for these small subjects. However, you will find them to be excellent quality kits of classic subjects.

Note that BlueJacket kit instructions are provided in english only.
