This little cutting pad is lousy with Coast Guard vessels. One more intake trunk to make, a wee tad more hull shaping, and TLAR Models US Coast Guard Point Class WPB set 2.0 will be ready to mold.

Here's something to think about...since you're doing rocky islands, how about a base? Like rough sea base so folks like me who can't construct stuff like that can just paint it? Or smooth surface base, maybe a cut out for where the boat would sit?

Just thinkin'...:hmmm

Closer & closer!

Intake trunks done. After bollards need drilled & added. I've been going to 60 psi on the old Mirro-matic for rtv molds, but you can hear her protest(creak, bulge, hiss) when I do!
If I am blown to bits making a mold, will someone please, make sure The Surgeons get my model collection? Please!??

I sold the 18th 1/700 Point-Class Cutter kit. My supply of original castings is exhausted. I am Proud!

These are the upgraded 1/700 USCG 82's, improved YR Barge, RHIB Boats, and I decided to include the 1/700 Defender 250 Patrol boat in the revised mold as well. The Defender boat may not be era-appropriate. So what!
Hey, I own the Company! It's a silly-assed little part-time Company, but I do get to make these decisions on my own! The Model Mojo was flowing tonite!!
