Syzmo TANEY as the flagship of USG-38 in 1944. In this unique configuration TANEY escorted troop transports to North Africa and fought off German air attacks off Algiers. No other Coast Guard Cutter received this heavy of a modification.
Syzmo At the end of WWII the six remaining 327 class Coast Guard Cutters were turned into amphibious flagships. This is TANEY as she appeared in 1945 during the Okinawa invasion as the flagship of Admiral Calvin Cobb.
Syzmo This is a great model of how the famous 327 class cutters (also known as the Secretary class or Treasury class) looked as built in 1936. The seven sisterships were TANEY, INGHAM, SPENCER, CAMPBELL, DUANE, ALEXANDER HAMILTON, and BIBB. All saw service in the USCG with the last being decommissioned in 1988 after 52 years of continuous service.
Syzmo This is a perfect addition to any Axis and Allies War at Sea collection. This is the first Coast Guard Cutter in 1/1800 scale. In this configuration TANEY and her six sisterships guarded convoys in the North Atlantic, Pacific, and Mediterranean throughout World War II. The masts are ingeniously shipped inside of the hull and can be glued on after being safely shipped.
Syzmo I work on TANEY, the last ship left afloat that participated in the attack on Pearl Harbor and this is a great scale model of how the ship looked at the time of the attack. The way the masts are shipped inside the hull so they don't break is brilliant. Absolutely beautiful model.
