Here are free ship plans for a World War II era ex-Navy 133-foot United States Coast Guard Cutter White Sumac. This ship is small enough that a model shipwright could be build at a larger scale without producing a model too large to handle. A 1/48 scale model would only be a little over 33 inches.
In addition to the plans presented here, we also have a number of detail plans, including one showing the difference between when the vessel was commissioned in the U.S. Navy and its service as a Coast Guard Cutter.
The U.S. Coast Guard cutter White Sumac was originally constructed as a yard lighter (YF416) for the United States Navy in 1943. This class of vessel provided logistical support to naval operations during World War II. Following the War, the Coast Guard acquired eight of these vessels to use as buoy tenders. The vessel was documented as part of a National Park Service program that documents historically significant engineering, industrial, and maritime sites in the U.S. These plans are maintained by the Library of Congress.
The Model Shipwright offers these plans free as high-resoultion TIFF files which you can have printed at a local print shop, or we can send you prints of the plans for $10 per 24″ x 36″ sheet, plus postage. For a price quote including postage, please let us know via our Contact Page.
