Check out my Nasty...my PTF Nasty that is!

Recommended Posts

This is my 1/35 PTF Nasty class patrol boat. I used the Lindburgh kit with multiple cans of Bondo! I'm also using the Italeri kit for a lot of the detail pieces. I'm working on the 20 mm mounts now and finishing up the deckhouse and deck details. It's taken me a couple of years to get to this point and it will probably take me a couple of more to finish! Hope you enjoy it. If you have any questions, let me know.

Very nice! It looks like you may have a bit of work ahead though :thumbsup:

I look forward to seeing updates on this. BTW, what are you using for references? I haven't seen much out there.

Hi John,

Yeah, I think your right. There is still a long road ahead! For references, this site is pretty cool (link). Great photos, technical and first-hand accounts. Unfortunately, I'm doing most of this by eye :thumbsup:, so I'm hoping it "looks" right in the end. Most of the detail parts are coming from the Italeri PT kit. The 40 mm, the 20 mm, props and prop shafts, cleats, vents, even the dingy will work.

Jim,

If you eMail me off board I can send you some other images that may be of some use to you. I have been researching the Nasty Class PTF for about fifteen years and you have certainly taken an alternative approach to building the Nasty hull from the keel up.

Sorry for not replying sooner. But I have a new toy, and another hobby to dump cash into:crying2: Man this thing is FAST!

Anyway, I am tinkering with the PTF here and there and I'm in the process now of getting the hull ready to prime. The 20 mm mounts are also still on the workbench, but I'm having a very hard time finding the right size for the ring base where the tripod attaches to the deck.

Again sorry for the delay,

Jim

I've finally figured out how to make the 20mm base mount. I used the road wheels from a Tamiya Panther tank to make the rings. It took me forever to figure it out and now all I have left to do is make the shield and shoulder rests (boy, that'll be another 6 months ;) ). It's suppose to look like the last two photos. Let me know what you think.

Any progress to be shared?  It has been almost ten years since we have heard anything on this project.  🙂

Did he eat pavement?  He's not dropped by this site since October of 2018.

No idea, he was on a roll for a while there with a lot of work done and I was really hoping he would have it done and painted by now.
