The pictures below show larger views of this Boxed ©1963 United States Navy Motor Torpedo PT-109 Revell Plastic Patrol Boat Model Kit. This is the U.S. Navy Torpedo Boat that was made famous by future U.S. President John F. Kennedy who served onboard. This model comes complete with instructions, decal sheet, and an application form to join the Official Revell Master Modelers Club. This is a plastic scale model kit by Revell. It is #H310. The box cover pictures (4) colorful images of the PT-109, (2) images of John F. Kennedy, and a map of the collision and recue operation. One side pictures other Revell model kits in color including the U.S.S. Radford DD-446 the U.S.S. Lexington CV-16, and the U.S.S. Missouri BB-63. The kit is opened, has some of the parts off of the sprues, and the model kit has been started, but appears to be complete. To judge the sizes the box measures about 13-3/4'' x 6-1/4'' x 1-7/8''. The kit appears to be in excellent condition as pictured. Below here, for reference, is some Historical information about the Motor Torpedo Boat PT-109:

The PT-109 was a PT boat (patrol torpedo boat) last commanded by Lieutenant (junior grade) John F. Kennedy, future United States President, in the Pacific Theater during World War II. His actions to save his surviving crew after the sinking of PT-109 made him a war hero. The PT-109’s collision contributed to Kennedy’s long term back problems and required months of hospitalization at Chelsea Naval Hospital. Kennedy’s post war campaigns for elected office referred often to his service on the PT-109.
