The US Coast Guard Rescue Boat was designated as a motor life boat (MLB) for the rescue of ships crews in distress. The model TRS version of the MLB entered service in 1937 with a length of 36'10" and a width of 10'9". It had a crew of three and could rescue up to twenty people.
The Glencoe 1/48 US Coast Guard Rescue Boat is another timeless mold, originally developed by ITC. It nicely captures the look and shape of the 36 foot TRS and doesn't lack for detail. Molded in a light blue styrene, this kit remains as originally designed, with US Coast Guard still molded on the hull sides. The main parts like the hull halves, deck, deck houses, etc., are separately molded while the smaller parts are still attached to one of the four parts trees. The kit includes three figures to represent the three-man crew of the TRS and a stand is also included to look like a wave holding the boat partially out of the water.
