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.
