In the September/October issue of Seaways Publishing's SHIPS IN SCALE magazine, T. Garth Connelly has an article about the building of a Revell 1:71/1:72 scale PT-109 kit into PT-174 (with her uniquely shielded 40mm, MK III gun) wearing the Adaptor Scheme.  The model was built by the late Alex Johnson in 2006.  Look for it.

PT Consulting was founded to allow me to aid fellow authors, historians and scale modelers as we preserve our heritage and our history.

Through this web site I will endeavor to provide up-to-date research on things like camouflage schemes and armament packages and the like. See special note from Garth

Also, I will provide information on where to purchase matched paints and after-market accessories for your models to give you the best and most authentic look possible.

Please look around...and feel free to send me your thoughts and comments on how I can continue to improve this web site.
