Re: PT-109 had wood planked decks...
The planked deck Elco boats had a layer of "marine glued airplane fabric" between the 2 layers of planking so the planking might be visible. After a few repaints, it's usually hard to tell.
but planked under a water proof covering so won't really see the planks themselves.
This is (I thought) a well known pic of her on her transport to the Pacific.
I post because I've seen at least a couple assertions about the old revell kit being crappy because of the planked deck.
