We received the following pictures from Ken
Bolen retired Senior Chief USCG and owner of Miniature Dream Models.
The pictures are of a prototype model of a Vietnam 82 footer. I spoke
with Ken and he said the model is 29 1/2 inches long and an exact detailed
replica of a Vietnam 82 footer. Ken also plans to build a smaller
scale model. Ken is shipping this prototype to the reunion for
everyone to look at. He would like your comments and any changes you
think might need to be made or anything he may missed anything. Ken states these are not kits
but scratch built models made of high quality hard woods and hand crafted by
highly skilled professional model builders. There
are a number of accessories which you can buy such as a display case,
upgraded stand or personalized plaque. You can have your boat painted either
peace time white or Vietnam gray and have you boats name and hull number put
on your model. Ken has been making and selling high quality miniature models
for quite some time and has a lot of different models for sale
including several USCG Lightships, a USCG 47 foot motor life boat (MLB), USCG 44 foot Rescue Boat
and a Vietnam era Navy Swift Boat.
