Treasury-class high endurance cutters

Seven cutters were built in 1936-1937 and named after secretaries of Treasury.

WPG-32 Campbell as in 1940 before sailing to Portugal. This is probably the earliest modification of the Treasury class when the seaplane was removed and a third 5"/51 gun was installed instead. The 6-pounders on the bridge were replaced with a 3"/50 gun and another 3"/50 was mounted aft on a raised platform.

WPG-34 Hamilton as in 1941 wearing the "Measure One" camo scheme.
Sadly, she was torpedoed by a German sub and sunk near Iceland coast in 1942 becoming the only war loss of her class.

WPG-36 Spencer as she appeared in June 1942. The camo pattern is an irregular version of the Measure 12 scheme.

WPG-37 Taney after her modification in 1944. She was the only cutter of Treasury class to have four 5" guns.

WPG-35 Ingham in 1944 wearing Measure 32 camo and armed with two 5"/38 guns in open mounts.

Duane was converted to an Amphibious Force Flagship (WAGC-6) in 1944. All guns had been replaced with AA artillery for supporting troops during landing.

WPG-31 Bibb in 1955 in a typical post-war configuration.

In 1965 the six remaining cutters of Treasury class were reclassified as WHEC and re-fit to the same standard.

Yes, thanks to J.A. Tilley who has drawn quite a few very detailed sideviews of various cutters. You can find them on USCG website here: http://www.uscg.mil/history/plans/Coast ... sIndex.asp

Thank you!
I said before that more versions are coming soon. Well, I might have been to optimistic about the timeframe ;) But they are coming, sooner or later.
