Product Description

This handcrafted Elco PT-109 Torpedo Boat model, in 1/40 scale, is painstakingly built by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail. The PT-109 was a PT boat (Patrol Torpedo Boat) last commanded by Lieutenant, junior grade (LTJG) John F. Kennedy (later President of the United States) in the Pacific Theater during World War II. Kennedy's actions to save his surviving crew after the sinking of the PT-109 made him a war hero, which proved helpful in his political career.

The only completely restored Elco PT-boat in existence, PT 617, is on display at the Battleship Cove Museum in Fall River, Massachusetts. Decorated as the PT-109, PT 796 was used as a float in John F. Kennedy's inaugural parade.

Our wooden PT-109 Torpedo Boat model is an exact replica of the original, handcrafted with vigilance by master craftsmen. After it is sanded and puttied, skilled artists paint on the intricate details. Clear lacquer provides the finishing touch and long-lasting protection. Each ship model comes on a display base with brass pedestals and a brass name plate.

Made with Mahogany.
