Have to say those are some really nice models. Served 3 yrs in New Bedford,MA on the Unimak and then 2yrs at a small boat station in the UP of Michigan. When I went to DC school I saw a '95 ft Cape class at Yorktown,finally was able to purchase the Revell kit. Going to have to start that soon.

Yup, that's what I have. I also have the Revell 1/400 or so scale kit of the Taney, a buddy of mine gave me a model of the Taney that an Uncle of his had put together as a kid. I think I'm going to do my Taney kit as the BiBB since that cutter tied up in the same home port as the Unimak.

I've finished the first two production ships (out of eight in the first run). These will be available around Sept. 1 for US $775. I'm awaiting some custom photo-etched brass for railings. More details later.

These will also be available as full hull models.

I believe I got the scantlings from the US Library of Congress "Historic American Buildings Survey/Historic American Engineering Record." Otherwise it was the Historical Naval Ships Association. Sorry I'm not more specific, as I downloaded the scantlings and renamed it, so I could find it on my computer. The L of C section has complete drawing of the Southern Pacific tug "Hercules," and a number of others.

I derived the superstructure from profile photographs and one straight on bow photo. Other spacings can be derived by observing items like rescue boats, which have a known length.

If anyone has pictures or plans for the ATA-202 Comanche, Sotoyomo class auxiliary ocean tug would you please contact the Comanche 202 Foundation [url]ata202@live.com[/url]. It was turned over to the Coast Guard and was eventually picked up by the foundation for restoration. Her home port is Tacoma, WA. They would appreciated any information they can get. Thanks.

Are there still any USCG cutter fans out there? I'm making one in CAD for 3D printing in both 1/350 and 1/700 scales. Specifically, I am making USCGC Bertholf (WMSL-750) and am thinking about posting my work to date, if there is any interest out there.

Wow Richard! 1/48 scale? She is going to be huge, some 8-9 feet long. How cool is that.
Here's the link to the thread I have started.

I know that it is some time since you started this post but i am also interested in building a 1/35 scale model of the island class cutters. I have the builders plans, a large sheet of the line drawings and deck plans, plus 6 smaller sheets of the internal layouts. If anyone has any helpful suggestions regarding such a build they would be very much appreciared, also any photos of these boats would be helpful. I do have some pictures taken of the internet plus some sent to me by ex uscg personell who have served on these boats. I am also happy to share the plans if anyone is interested. I have built the hull framework but realised that by the time i plank it it will be oversize so have to start again.

I see this is an older thread, but I'm a brand new member. I have some great photos of an Island Class 110-foot WPB from a former Coastguardsman, who served aboard USCGC Chandeleur, WPB-1311.
I haven't learned to post pictures yet. :newbie:

I've also got 1/700 resin waterline kits of the Point Class 82-foot Cutter for interested Micro-maniacs!
