    Has anyone ever seen a card model of a 378' U. S. Coast Guard cutter? Would anyone be interested in designing (unfolding) one, if I were to provide a 3D model of one?

    Hi Joseph,
    I have not seen any USCG ship models,free downloads anyway, and I would love to see this model come to life. I hope one of our member model designers will take this on. :-D

    I agree, Barry would do a superb job of this model...but I would love him to start the Spruance first...okay, being selfish, but I would love to see him do that one first...then the CG cutter.:grin:

    Cheers!

    Coastguard cutter

    Hi Lads

    Well I like the Coastguard livery and yes Jim Spruance is first it fits with Norfolk's era. The trouble with other peoples 3d models is you don't know who has the copyright. I prefer a good plan and a lot of pics especially the rear of the bridge and the base of the funnel not the inevitable long range snapshot of one in rough water.

    regards

    Well since I am the Chief Damage Controlman onboard the USCGC Hamilton (WHEC-715) and I have a few projects in those areas, I can definately get those photos for you. Yesterday I finished a welding job on the star deck behind the bridge. The area that you are probably concerned about is the plenum chambers (intakes for the turbines), behind the bridge and before the funnel. Let me know if you are interested and what all you need.

    Hi Joeseph

    I am certainly interested but I have to be honest it will be a while before I start doing the ship but if you know of a 3 view plan that would be great for starters.

    best regards
