  COAST GUARD SHIP MODELS

The US Coast Guard plays a critical role in the well being of the US citizens yet few could appreciate the service enough.

The Coast Guard is the lead federal agency protecting our Nation’s maritime critical infrastructure and maritime transportation system. More than 90 percent of the world’s goods and over $4 trillion of economic activity is supported by networked domestic and global maritime supply chain.

Coast Guard ships protect our homeland by severing the finance of criminal networks by interdicting drugs where they are most vulnerable – at sea.

The United States is one of eight Arctic nations, and the Coast Guard is the lead service asserting national security interests in this region where our sovereignty extends beyond our traditional 200 nautical mile EEZ and into our Extended Continental Shelf (ECS). Receding Arctic sea ice exposed the sea bed to exploration and extraction of vast natural resources.

With all those important tasks, yet the Coast Guard is in an unwell state. Urgent threats from China and Russia force the US government to direct more resources to the Navy and Marine Corps. The Coast Guard is the only armed service funded below Budget Control Act levels.

The Coast Guard must be ready to protect American security and economic interests wherever called. With some cutters exceeding 50 years of service, the Coast Guard must be upgraded to meet daily challenges and remain prepared for major contingencies. Acquiring National Security and Fast Response Cutters; beginning production of Offshore Patrol Cutters, and constructing heavy icebreakers are crucial to national and homeland security.

The Coast Guard needs three heavy and three medium icebreakers to ensure national year-round access to the polar regions and to provide self-rescue capability. Russia's militarization of the Arctic region and ECS claims are on the rise. While America only has one heavy icebreaker, Russia has two operational with four more in refit. In 2016, Russia launched the most powerful icebreaker in the world--the heavy nuclear icebreakers Arktika. The ship is monsterous, weighing in at around 33,000 tons, more than three times that of the USCGC Polar Star.

To support the Coast Guard, ModelShipMaster.com will put extra effort in helping the agency gain more public's interest by presenting absorbing facts and stories about each type of its cutters as well as the special ships. One of our main tasks is to build the most accurate models of the cutters. Although we by far the best makers of model ships, we always appreciate the help from members of the service and ship builders. Thank you for your support and patronage that continue to help us make astounding models. Please send us an email anytime, at Services@ModelShipMaster.com

PS: great news! on April 23, 2019, the Coast Guard and U.S. Navy awarded VT Halter Marine a contract for the design and construction of the lead Polar Security Cutter. Construction on the first ship is planned to begin in 2021 with delivery planned for 2024. The contract includes financial incentives for earlier delivery!

When you are choosing a reputable builder for your favorite Coast Guard model, look for large photos showing details to verify if a model is worth the title "museum quality" as wildly claimed by some. Also spend some time looking at photos of the real ship to see if that model lacks many details. Remember that a model that looks good from afar but might disappoint big time when held in your hands (the two-foot test.)
