Ahoy Mates!

Here's a blast from the past, Lindberg Models has just re-issued their popular "John F. Kennedy''s PT-109", motorized version, and here's our "first-look" review of the kit!

I think you went a little too easy on this kit. If you want a pool toy, or want to spend an exorbitant amount of effort to get a passable representation of a PT boat, than this the kit for you. However, if you want a more accurate model, then I would recommend that you seek elsewhere.

hi Ive just started with my 109 kit however the kit is missing the instruction sheets, it only has the motorizing sheets, the kits number is 2660 can you help it would make the build quicker and easier.

Gunny, thanks for a "blast from the past" review! First kit I started when I returned to the hobby was the Revell PT 109. I think we ALL build a PT 109 at some point! Glad to see Lindberg re-issuing some classics (like Revell has been doing). yes, not very accurate and very 'toy-like" but I think these releases are aimed at "us" to be built out of fond memories and a fun build.

Hi BJ,
If you PM me your e-mail address, I will scan the instruction sheet and send it off to you as a .pdf file, mate...

Cheers,
