Product information "USCG Fast Response Cutter"

The Sentinel-class cutter, also known as the Fast Response Cutter because of its programme name, is part of the US Coast Guard's Deepwater programme. At 154 feet (46.8 m) long, it is similar to the 123-foot (37 m) Island-class patrol boats of the 1980s. Up to 58 vessels are to be built by Louisiana-based Bollinger Shipyards to a design by the Dutch Damen Group. The vessels will perform various Coast Guard missions, including port, waterway and coastal security, defence operations, maritime law enforcement, search and rescue, maritime safety and environmental protection. The vessels are armed with a Mark 38 25mm remotely operated machine gun system and four M2HB .50 calibre (12.7mm) heavy machine guns. They have a bow thruster for manoeuvring in crowded anchorages and channels. They also have small underwater fins to cope with rolling and pitching in large waves. Like the Marine Protector class, they are equipped with a stern loading ramp. They are manned by a crew of 22.

The DUMAS kit of the USCG Fast Response Cutter is constructed of wood and foamed PVC, using die-cut and laser-cut parts. The plywood frame is planked with the PVC sheets. The advantage of foamed PVC is the excellent realisation of the hull shape around the frames, furthermore this layer is absolutely waterproof with high impact strength. This material has been used by DUMAS for many years. If you like, you can replace the PVC parts with plywood. The detailing of the model is comparatively high. All typical features of the original are reproduced, the metal cast fittings set contains 108 parts. For experienced modellers it should be appealing to make various details functional.

A drive with two motors is planned, parts for this are not included. Our suggestions can be found in the tab on this page further down under accessories.

The instructions are completely in English and consist of a text book (40 pages) with step by step instructions and a booklet with 140 drawings and illustrations. Experienced modellers with little knowledge of the English language will find it easy to build. There are 11 films on YouTube with instructions on how to build the model, which can be very helpful.
