RESEARCH & PLANS
inv_spacer.gif (807 bytes)

For what ever reason you have now found yourself wanting a model of the Asheville Class Gunboats. And now what do you do?  You can buy a "sport scale" model kit from Dumas, or order a fiber pre-made glass hull.  The fiber glass hull leaves the builder to complete the rest of the model themselves.  This is the tougher option but leads to a much more "scale" model.

Plans:

The Floating Drydock offers a set of plans.  The "G" series plans are copies of US Navy "Booklet of General Plans". These plans show both interior and exterior views. A few of the original plans have been re-drawn by them due to poor reproduction quality of the original and some interiors are omitted. These plans can be used to build a model or used for research projects.  Plans listed are for ships PG-84, PG-85, PG-88, PG-92.  Price range from $18.00 to $22.00.  They also offer online ordering and have fast shipping.  They also offer ordnance drawings!

 

Fiberglass Hulls:
Mosquito Boat Hobbies offers some fiberglass hulls for the PG-84 Asheville Class.  Scales include 1/24th, 1/35th and 1/48th. Hulls come with a set of builders plans.  These are not complete kits.  Most only include the fiberglass hull.  Mosquito Boat Hobbies offers a few fittings for these hulls.

Lee Upshaw at The Scale Shipyard offers the
PG-84 Asheville Class fiberglass hulls in 1/35th and 1/48th scales.  Each hull comes with a set of plans.  These  are only the fiberglass hulls and are not complete kits.  Lee also offers a few fittings for these hulls.

HR Products offers a wide selection of fittings in a wide range of scales.  They offer a 40mm Bofors Single (S32-18) that I used on my Dumas USS Crockett.
