    Hi,
    I'm up for one. I might build her as the original VT 108' PB design. See pic.
    On the other hand; the CG Cutter would make a change.
    If you can get this off the ground a copy of your plans would be most welcome. Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    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. ยฃ55 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.
