Kurt Van Dahm's Picket Boat!

As you can see from the pictures below, Kurt Van Dahm, a Director in the Nautical Research Guild
and a Contributing Editor in Ships in Scale, is in the middle of building his own USN Picket Boat #1 by Model Shipways! As Kurt builds, he is also writing an article / reviewing the kit - it will be in an upcoming Ships in Scale issue!

Kurt, we know you're an active member of our blog - I'm sure everyone here would like to hear your thoughts on the USN Picket Boat #1 thus far - sound-off here!

  1. Another great kit from Model Shipways and designer Bob Crane. Just getting ready to start the planking and so far it has been a very enjoyable build. Everything fits together perfectly - Model Shipways has produced top quality laser cut pieces that fit! Planking should go great due to the 3 different widths of planks wide enough to spile where needed and the laser etched marks on the bulkheads showing the planking runs should make the planking much easier than doing the marking myself.
