PT Boat 103 Class Elco 80' Torpedo Boat
designed and Created by Dave Winfield

Represented here in  "Zebra Stripe" or "Dazzle" Disruptive Camouflage.
[This model is also available in common paint schemes.]Throughout World War 1 and 2, the American Military experimented with Disruptive Camouflage on all types of Land, Sea and Air vehicles.  The camouflage was intended to interfere with normal range finding and make it difficult to judge a vehicles direction at a distance. However the paint schemes were time consuming to apply and difficult to maintain. Two PT squadrons used the Dazzle paint schemes, one in the South Pacific and one in the Mediterranean.

1942 Elco 80 foot Torpedo Boat...of all PT Boats used in World War 2 by the United States Navy, 326 of  the 103 Class PT Boat were produced...the highest number of all Torpedo Boats used.  The 103 Class Elco is most famously known for PT-109, which was captained by future US President John F Kennedy. These amazing completely wooden Boats were powered by three massive V12 engines and were equipped with Smoke Screens, Turret fitted Machine Guns, Anti Aircraft Guns and self propelled Torpedoes. Later versions also came equipped with Depth Charges and forward facing Guns.
