The U.S. Patrol Torpedo Boat, referred to as the PT Boat, may not be as well-known as the aircraft carriers or battleships of World War II, but it was just as vital to our victory. With its small size and great speed, it delivered special forces on remote Pacific Islands and sank unwary enemy merchant ships supplying their forces. The most famous PT Boat is PT 109, captained by President John F. Kennedy who, with his crew, survived a harrowing experience after the sinking of their boat by an Imperial Japanese destroyer.
This highly detailed 15-foot wood scale model PT Boat is battery-powered with a single seat pilot house. It includes the high-quality G.I. Joe action figures and display sign detailing the adventures of President J. F. Kennedy and his crew. This is a fantastic scale model with the ability to amaze all who see it in action on the water. It honors the sacrifices of the sailors who survived adverse conditions to achieve victory during World War II. - SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY
