Default Hamilton Class Coast Guard Cutter

I have been working over the last 6 months on my Coast Guard model of the USCG Munro, WHEC 724. I have finally added most of the detail and gotten her into the water.VERY top heavy, but it works great. I am going to add a little more weight to the bottom of the boat and I think its good.
Here are some shots from this morning.
Enjoy
Eric

Beautiful ship! I sailed on one of the smaller 210' CG ships, the Reliance. Any video of it sailing?

I do not have any videos yet, and all the ponds are now frozen here in Boston.
I will post something in the Spring. And I am working on a freighter to go with this ship so I have something to stop and inspect.

Thanks for the comments.
Eric

I would LOVE to own one of these! Is it a kit yet? I would like to get a small dolphin helicopter to fly off the back as well! Let me know please! Where do I start?

Also, I have the stacks and masts still in stock to make the build a lot easier.

Excuse me for the late contact. I recently started looking into online forums about model RC boats. As I have been wanting to make a scratch built Hamilton class cutter, I was interested in your model mentioned on 11-19-2012. At the present time I am fabricating a plug to make a mold so I can have a finished fiberglass hull. I am building in 1/48 scale. I am at the stage now of covering the plug with fiberglass resin so I can apply automotive primer and final sanding of the plug. My plug is made from blue rigid styrofoam house insulation.
I was stationed on three different Hamilton class cutters, Sherman, Boutwell, Mellon. I collected quite a library of info on the pre-FRAM ships. I prefer the pre-FRAM versions. I was also stationed on Mellon when she test fired the only harpoon missile!
I would like to correspond with you, if permissible, about the build of your model. My next big question, as I am just starting with the hull, is WHERE do you put the separation between the hull and superstructure so you can gain access to the internal working of the ship. I have looked at numerous ways to separate the forecastle and fantail section with the superstructure the question I have yet to solve.

Sorry for the long time between your last e-mail and this reply. I just discovered this web site, and searched for CG related info. I am in the process of scratch building a 1:48 scale RC Model of CGC Mellon. I tried to view your photos on wmunderway, yet the website mentioned was not available. Is it possible to see photos of your model on a different website? As I am at the stage of fabricating a plug to make a mold for the finish hull to be made from fiberglass and resin. I spent tours on 3 seperate WHEC 378s, Sherman, Boutwell and Mellon. I wold be interested in details of your model.
