PT Boat
My idea was to recreat this pretty but deadly ship in the most perfect way I could.
About this creation
PT Boats, or Patrol Torpedo Boats, were a secondary element in World War 2 navies, but an essential one. They dominated a specific part of naval warfare, that of night warfare in coastal waters, but in that part they were essential because neither other vessels nor aircraft could perform as they did.

The PT Boats were faster and smaller than all other vessels. For example, the ELCO PT boat type had a speed of 40 knots, displacement of 38 tons, and length of 24m/80ft, a midget warship. They were armed with torpedoes, mines, and depth charges against targets much larger than themselves, and with rapid fire guns and machine guns against their counterparts and other small targets. The PT boats went out almost night after night to raid the enemy's coastal shipping or to protect their side's shipping from the enemy's night raiders.
Their deadly encounters with the enemy were usually short, and often sudden to both sides. They often used stealth to silently search for and ambush the enemy along its shipping routes, and then used their powerful engines only once they were detected, to attack a much larger enemy and then escape at top speed.

Incredible! Somebody LDD-ed a mini-fig scale LEGO creation that actually looks like it's supposed to! Nice work, especially the water backdrop! I'm really overusing the exclamation point aren't I! Great job! -- -- Michael
