That's a really nice little fleet you've got there, Mike. Very classy.

Thank you Leo, the Canadian Coast Guard has one of these boats on display as a museum piece, the Bamfield Lifeboat.

Tim, thanks for the nice comment. Your build of the Revell USCGC TANEY is the gold standard for that model. I served on the Secretary class cutters BIBB, DUANE, and CAMPBELL in my CG career. I've got 5 of the Revell Taney/Campbell kits, I've got to build them one of these days and attempt to build them like yours. Cheers!
