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.

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 😎
