Over 12" long this is a
LIMITED EDITION!! kit.


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.
