Patrol Frigates (PF) originated from River class anti-submarine ships (originally called "corvettes" and later "frigates"), then on order in a Canadian shipyard for the British Royal Navy, that were transferred to the U.S. Navy in February 1942. These vessels were originally classified as corvettes and numbered in the "gunboat" (PG) series by the US Navy, and accordingly assigned hull numbers PG-101 through PG-110. The first two were placed in commission as such in December 1942, and the remaining eight were returned to the Royal Navy under "Lend-Lease". A hundred similar ships, modified to American specifications, were ordered from U.S. shipyards under Maritime Commission contracts. These were initially assigned hull numbers PG-111 through PG-210. On 15 April 1943, the U.S. Navy changed the classification of the first two Canadian-built ships, and of all those planned for construction in the United States, to "patrol escort", or "frigate", with numbers assigned in a newly-established PF series. Ninety-six frigates were built upon authorization in December 1942, seventy-five manned by the Coast Guard and twenty-one loaned to the Royal Navy as colony- class frigates. US frigates were designated Tacoma-class, all named for small American cities.

We offer our Patrol Frigate (PF) Models in several popular size/scale offerings for easy ordering and selection.  However, if you would like your model made in a size other than those sizes listed, please contact us with your request. Custom orders are our specialty!

Our models are made-to-order, meaning that we do not stock any pre-made models.  Only when a customer tells us the size and/or scale desired do we build the model. Each model is exquisitly crafted by our master model builders and comes fully assembled with a solid hull - hand carved from kiln-dried mahogany.  Other parts are made from a variety of woods, putty, resin and metals. Every model includes pedestals, a polished mahogany base board, and a name plate.  Options include keel block mounting, waterline models, ships seals and ribbons, and weathering paint schemes.

The model build time is generally 24 weeks from receipt of the order and deposit. The normal procedure is a 50% deposit with the commissioning, with the balance due prior to shipping.  Note that prior to shipping, we take a series of photos of the model and send them to you for final review and approval – so you know exactly what your model will look like and allow for any necessary modifications. Once you have approved your model, we’ll collect the final balance and she will be shipped in a robust shipping crate and insured for your protection.

FREE SHIPPING in the USA - Note that our model prices include shipping and insurance within the USA.

Shipping costs outside the USA will depend on the model size ordered and shipping destination. You will be responsible for any applicable taxes or duties, based on the commercial invoice value for the model.
