Revell US Coast Guard Cutter 1/302

Recommended Posts

Here’s my build of the US Coast Guard Cutter Duane (WHEC-33) as she appeared ca. 1980.

The model was converted from the Revell USCGC Taney kit.  The Revell mold dates from 1957, and the model is in a mid-1950s fit.  I used the GMM railings designed for this kit, and replaced some of the clunky details with a mix of 1/350 aftermarket and scratch built parts.  The Radar Room and tripod mainmast are scratchbuilt.

 

The model was built as a gift for an old friend and classmate, whose first duty station was aboard Duane in the early 80s.

 

The stripe is painted, and the decals are from the Model Alliance 1/350 set.  The “DUANE” decal on the stern was made by a club mate who has a laser printer.
