I wish to build
a USCG Island class cutter. I have a full set of plans
but I am not too brilliant at making hulls from scratch. I have found a possible source, MTBHulls of Gibralta, of getting a fibre glass
hull at 1/48 scale
but they need an order of 4 to produce one. They produce many different hulls but not this one, hence the requirement for 4 to make it viable to make a new hull. So I am looking for 3 other model makers
who may be interested in buying one of these hulls at approx. £55 each plus any cost for me to post them on or deliver.
The Island class cutter is 110 feet long, which would make a model
just over 2 foot long, and based on a Vosper Thornycroft design but built
in the States. I believe there were about 80 built
of which 35 remain in service.
There are many pictures of them on the internet which is where I got the plans
from but I am happy to copy the plans
if anyone is interested.
