T42 is a 1:25 scale model of the Swedish Motor Torpedo Boat T42 class. It was build by Kockums in 1956.

I built this model more than 50 years ago, and now I will refurbish it to be a test bench for various electronics projects.

T42 is a Swedish Motor Torpedo Boat (MTB). It was built in 1959 at Kockums. With her V-bottom, she also represented the most advanced and modern MTB series.
