For about 50 years Revell made a 1/72nd scale model of the PT 109.
It was not actually PT 109, but rather just a generic patrol torpedo boat. It is a good kit, even now.
It is an early war PT boat, the type used all over the Pacific war, from the first days of the conflict.
I waterlined the model and glued a sheet of styrene to the bottom.
The model is about a foot long, and comes with a decent few crew figures.
