Here are some images plus a composite of Italeri's 1/35 scale Typ E. 100 Schnellboot (hurry boat) torpedo boat. Italeri released two 1/35 scale boats last year. The American PT boat was one and the Schnellboot was the other with a limited first release run I was told at around 200 each. So for right now they are not available but I'm sure considering how much time and money was pumped into creating this model I am sure their will be rerelease's for many years to come. The detail on this boat is incredible and a real pleasure to build. Also Italeri has an after market 1/35 scale figure set available that I intend on getting for this craft, and as for the PT boat I'll just have to wait for the next release. But at around $240 CDN it can put a hole in your pocket.
