Need some help as I am trying to get into boats. Am looking for sites or anything else about Vietnam era boats. PT, PBR, etc. Am looking for larger size models if there are any out there. Any help is greatly appreciated.

For Scale boat questions, you may have better luck asking in the Scale boat forum.
Last week I was at the Toledo show. Midwest Products has a RTR PT boat that is pretty big.

Really big ones are typically scratch built... See Robert Voorhees "models"

Midwest is the most recent model to enter the market.
There are a couple threads regarding it. Search the scale section.

Dumas makes a 1/32nd scale, and a 1/20th scale

Pt 109 was an 80 foot ELCO
So the Dumas kits come out to 30 and 48 inches
The Midwest kit 1/24 so it comes out to 40 inches.

If you are up to scratch building a large scale boat, has plan sets available for the adventurous modeler.
