The USCGC Eagle was originally built in Germany in 1936 to train German sailors for war and was captured by American forces in 1945 as part of war reparations. This barque is still active as a Coast Guard training cutter and even comes to different foreign coasts for goodwill missions. She is a fascinating and detailed ship and today you can order a replica of her to have in your home. This is a fine gift for those who are interested in the history of World War II or of American naval history in general.
This boat model is 15 inches tall, 19 inches long and three inches wide. It also weighs about five pounds so you can place her in many spots all around your home. It fits in perfectly on a typical bookshelf or desk among other spots located in the home.
This is made of wood and features several canvas sails. The sails are arranged with several pillars and tiers to create a realistic detail so it looks just like the real USCGC Eagle.
The ship model also has its own display base. This base is sturdy and has the name of the ship emblazoned on it.
