First I had the same question as to the name of the ship it is a COAST GUARD CUTTER but do not no the corect name, as far as this sellers reputation, i have purchased some things from her, with excellent results, quality is as good as ZHL and sometimes even better, delivery is OK also, would not hesitate to by from her again, comunication is difficult as she does not speak English, WHAT I AM REALLY INTERESTED IN IS THE CONCEPT OF 3-D instruction, which DAVE STEVENS AND I HAVE HAD MUCH DISCUSSION ON, at that price I think I will get it as I am afraid that the POF ALERT IS GOING TO BE OUT OF MY PRICE RANGE, I LIKE THE CONCEPT, if anyone can tell me about the name it coud be a generic, would like more information. THANKS Don

That I understand Zoly my question is there a revenue cutter named the ALERT, this is to see if it is historicaly correct for the build or is it a fictious name, as I said WHAT REALLY INTERESTS ME IS THE 3-D aspect of this. Don

This is the listing wikipedia is telling us:

Five ships of the United States Navy have borne the name Alert. During World War I, three ships held the name simultaneously.
Seven cutters of the United States Coast Guard have borne the name Alert.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Alert

The references are given on the web.page

and on threedecks you can find in total 35 vessels with the name "Alert" - also from the US:

On the listing only american Alerts are shown, because you asked before about the americans.
The Alert, which is built with the kit from China is the british from 1777. This was already shown inside this topic with contemporary drawings within this post:

Here you can see most of the british Alert built - an "ours" is the 1777 launched one:

Now I am totally confused, the model kit for the ALERT by the Chinese Co. on e-bay, is it a AMERICAN REVENUE CUTTER NAMED ALERT, or is it as UWE says THE 1777 ENGLISH ALERT, and the new POF ALERT is it a different alert, really confused on this one. Don
