Fun Run by Donnieboy Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Our club had our Fun Run today.We operate out of Humber Bay in Toronto whilr the weeds are down.The sun is finally cooperating. We have two ponds to run our boats in.The Sailors run in the big pond and the scale members run in the smaller pond.Attached are a few photos of the day.I must mention that the first picture is a new construction of a Marblehead out for a test run.The Canadian Coast Guard Ice breaker is totally scratch built with working radar and lights.This member works on his kitchen table.We found out later that he was born on a kitchen table.

Bridge/Cockpit/Flight Deck construction by Skydive130 Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
so, having been at work all weekend, today saw a day off and a few hours to start building the foreward cockpit bridge thingy. There will be quite a bit of shape changing mods to this part as we build, simply because the Dumas kit is of the 44ft Coastguard cutter and the Waveney class Lifeboat has quite a few differences. Changes to make include the windows, the rear walls to be extended to take acount of extra windows at back of cab, forward sloping front piece, engine intakes on both sides, and changes to the roof. Still waiting on a reference book on "Waveneys" from ebay, should have been here by now! that will give me the change to start super detailing the exterior decs, cabins ect.

CG-52301 "TRIUMPH" by USCG40533 Petty Officer   Posted: 5 months ago
I was at the Coast Guardsman Memorial, Cape Disappointment, Ilwaco, WA. USA this past weekend. We took down our retired 44331 MLB for the ceremony. Here is a little history of the Triumph 1. I've had the opportunity to meet the man who survived the sinking of the 52301. http://www.chinookobserver.com/co/coast-guard/20170117/sea-h...

Fleet thinning time by USCG40533 Petty Officer   Posted: 5 months ago
I'm very interested in the 44 MLB. I would like to know how much would it cost for shipping from the UK to Portland, Oregon, USA. I have made one, 44307 when I was station in the Coast Guard in Boston, MA

BRAVO ZULU! I LOVE 1:48 SCALE. I HAVE A US WESTERN RIVER LINEHAUL TOWBOAT AND TWO US COAST GUARD CUTTERS UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN THAT SCALE. WELL DONE!

us coast guard by circle43nautical Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 months ago
BRAVO ZULU! VERY WELL DONE, SIR. As a USCG Veteran, I am pleased to see these MLB's recreated in scale. If she's watertight, you can roll her in the surf and the boat should self-right. I have an older Billing Boats 1:20 that in theory is ready for heavy surf, but haven't tested her yet. I have seen video, though that confirms it. YES, MR. ARNOLD PALMER WAS A US COAST GUARDSMAN, YM3, 1950-53 HAVE A SAFE RC BOATING DAY!

WPB 110 by circle43nautical Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
Very nice WPB! I am a USCG Vet & have built or am building a few Coast Guard craft. I served in the early '80s, so these boats were after my time. The USCGC BLACKFIN (WPB-87317) was stationed @ Santa Barbara, CA when I worked for the SB Harbor Patrol.

[Score: 8/10] 35"/3400g USCGC KATMAI BAY (WTGB-101 Capable of 14mph and a runtime of 60mins Single Propellor (5 Blade 45mm) Direct Drive to a 775 Johnson type (5 Blade) Powered by NiMH (8.4v) 3Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Dimart 320A Fan cooled (10Amps) ESC - Comments: 1:48 scale Replica of USCGC KATMAI BAY (WTGB-101), fiberglass hull & 3/4" plywood cabin/superstructure, molded by Al Mergens @ Coast Guard Models in Elk Grove Village, IL. Most likely the last Bay Class hulls that Al will produce, as he is retiring from this craft soon. I wish I could afford to relieve him of the molds; he has one for just about every USCG cutter and coastal craft that was built. As a safer alternative due to COPD, I would use polyester fabric & resin instead of fiberglass. She is a great matching scale companion to my USCGC VIGOROUS (WMEC-627) model from the same source. THANKS AL! SEMPER PARATUS! GOD BLESS AMERICA! YES, MR. ARNOLD PALMER WAS A US COAST GUARDSMAN (YM3) 1950-53

USCG SURFMAN'S CREED by circle43nautical Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
Boys become SURFMEN! This is the core of the US Coast Guard and what the reason I enlisted. Although I chose to be a Signalman and Navigator, my opinion is that a Coast Guard Surfman, in any country, any uniform, any language, is the true real man. You have to go out, but you don't have to come back

Brass Fittings by circle43nautical Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 months ago
Thanks again for posting that ebay vendor. I needed two signal searchlights in that scale for my US Coast Guard 210' WMEC Cutter USCGC VIGOROUS (WMEC-627) model. Right on!

THE BUILDER OF THESE HULLS DOES JUST ABOUT EVERY USCG CRAFT, WWII TO PRESENT. UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO HEALTH REASONS, HE IS ABOUT TO RETIRE AND RELINQUISH THE FORMS. HIS WEBSITE IS COASTGUARD MODELS.COM IF ANYONE IS INTERESTED. I PLAN TO ORDER A USCG BAY CLASS ICEBREAKING TUG THIS WEEK, BEFORE IT'S OBSOLETE. THAT WOULD ALSO COMPLETE MY USCG FLEET THAT IS RELATIVE TO MY SERVICE. THERE ARE NO SUPERSTRUCTURE ASSEMBIES AVAILABLE FOR THE WMEC, HENCE A SCRATCH BUILD FROM THE MAIN DECK IS IN MY NAUTICAL FUTURE. LUCKILY, GEORGE BIEDA @ WINDJAMMERARTS.COM PUT TOGETHER A LARGE SHEET OF 1:48 DRAWINGS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION. MY PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY IS PRETTY GOOD, BUT EVERY LIL BIT HELPS, I RECKON. THERE IS, HOWEVER A S/S & CABIN ASSLY FOR THE BAY CLASS, AT A COST, OF COURSE. PARATUS GERERE! YES, MR. ARNOLD PALMER WAS A US COAST GUARDSMAN (YM3) 1950-53
