Revell 1/72 Torpedo Boat - 00026

The US Navy's fast and robust Torpedo Boats achieved great successes, especially in the Pacific theatre of war. On 5th November 1943, PT167 was under way with a convoy from Cape Torokina towards the Treasury Islands. A sudden attack by 12 Japanese Torpedo Bombers was followed by vehement defensive action. After a low flying bomber had hit the radio mast on PT167, the boat received another heavy hit but no explosion followed. During a succeeding attack by another bomber squadron the gunners on PT167 shot down an enemy aircraft. During an inspection of the boat after the battle a huge hole was discovered in the bow. An enemy torpedo had penetrated the bow above the waterline without exploding.

Limited to 5,000 pieces worldwide, Revell's nautical offering in the form of this PT167 Torpedo boat truly showcases the companies talent regarding crisp moulding and fitment of parts. Any boat fan would be proud to assemble this fine model.
