hi Grampian Warrior, if you go onto a web site of a company www.modelsbydesign.co.uk and on the top left of their home page click onto "our boats" you will find a whole list of model hulls.
almost at the bottom of that page there is a hull that I made the moulds for some years ago of the MARR's stern trawler Norina/Idena at 1:50 scale which makes a nice sized little boat.
at this scale you can also buy many proprietory scale fittings for the boat without having to scratch build everything.
also it comes with a general builders manual, a rudder skeg /rudder and a materials pack to aid building......in fact all you need to start building your first Marr's boat.
happy building. neil.(Thumb)
