After all these years I finally have something I can build for my father.

He was on the USS Pitkin County (LST-1082) in Vietnam War and I have not found a WWII LST yet. The PBR’s would dock at his ship for fuel and rest so he was really happy I had one in the box. So this is the next project and will be posting as I build so he can watch.





I've been building models off and on for over 30 years and really got back into models in 2014. The web has made it easier to research and see what others are doing which is helping me learn new things to apply to each new build.

  1. Thank you son. I don’t often spend very much time remembering those days. The first time I saw you was when the Pitkin County returned to Guam. Our home port. We were in port for about two weeks then back to Viet Nam to re-supply the River Patrol Boats and distribute goods and amo to many bases.
    Your mother and sister made a home for y’all and I would return home every two or three months.

    Thank you again for the return of many memories. Love Dad
