CG 40564 - Posted: 5 months ago by circle43nautical
Built in 2016, she is a 1:14 scale Dumas 40 ft. UTB, which I did my best to keep natural wood wherever possible. Powered by twin 775 size 12 volt Johnson type motors turning Raboesch 50mm 4-blade brass wheels. I properly illuminated her with Lighthouse 9v LEDs and adorned with a BECC USCG Ensign. I overbuilt her like my Father overbuilt his airplanes.

Thank you for your interest and kind words. She's my pride and joy, and has given me much enjoyment. I believe she's sturdy enough to break 1/2" ice! Here's a few more pics of the CIRCLE 43 NAUTICAL CRAFTWORKS/ILLINIWEK MARINE SCALE SHIPYARD FLEET

Beautiful US Coast Guard model. I really like the look of their ships and what a superb looking flag at the transom!
I'd love to see some on water shots.

But I was most attracted to Gusty Cat ...
So.. Model of thames barge , build according to modified plans of sb Lady Daphne in scale 1:28 (length cca 1 meter ).
it will be again a model with an auxiliary motor, staysail class.
I am currently grinding the laminate hull with several layers of putty.
It is an ungrateful job.

BRAVO ZULU! Very fine replica, sir. In relation, I am about to build a 1:48, 35" USCG 140' Bay Class Icebreaking tug, USCGC KATMAI BAY (WTGB-101). I was fortunate to sail aboard her in the mid '80s, and it's a pipe dream come true to build a scale RC replica of her. In fact, I have the matching 1:48 hull of a USCG 210' WMEC, USCGC VIGOROUS (WMEC-627), that I served aboard prior to.
I am just now beginning to research CCG rescue vessels & small craft. I reckon that will take another adult childhood to discover!
