Hi, 
I am finishing up an ocean-going tug model (Zwarte Zee, 1937, 42” 1/72 scale) and am thinking about my next project: a BIG working model ship that would be roughly in scale with my tug.  I'm thinking of a non-military ship -- like a liner, commercial ship or something. I guess I'm a little enamored of the navel designs the early-mid 1900's (hence my 1937 tug) as opposed to a modern cruise ship, or something.  I've been talking to loyalhannadockyard about some potential options there including a 94" hull of 1937 liner.  But I'm a little daunted by an almost 8' long model. So something a little smaller? Or not ... 

Ideally, I would love to buy a hull (fiberglass ?) and a source for scale-appropriate fittings ... 

Any recommendations from the RCModelboat-asphere? Where would you send me?

In the UK there is a company modelling the cross channel and North Sea Ferries of the mid 1900s. These are full kits including hulls and fittings.

  • Check out fleetscale for warships! 

https://www.fleetscale.com/

They have some of the most accurate warship hulls out their including my type 42 Cumberland, I highly recommend them for service and quality. Prices tho are not cheap so be prepared.
