There are actually hundreds, you need to be a bit more specific in your requirements.

What scale?
What period?
What materials?
Static or R/C?

Etc

Nordica, if you fancy building LARGE, and I mean lllaaaarrrrggggggeeeeee, Metcalf Mouldings will produce you a hull to special order in grp of the Tanker "Prestige" which split in two a few years back and sank off Spain. It is to 1:100 scale and measures about 8' in length. they can be contacted on 01920 438686.

I take it their website doesn't show the full range then?
I've been thinking about ordering their Waverley hull for some time and having a bash at it.

P.S. NORDICA
I recall contacting them some years ago about the 'Queen of Bermuda' model listed in their liners section. I believe the price would have been around USD2,300,

If you do go for the Waverley hull from Metcalf would appreciate hearing your comments. I'm trying to decide whether to continue with a scratchbuilt 1/84 scale Waverley or switching to the molded hull in a larger scale.(I think the Metcalf one is about 1/56)
Cheers

Jim,
What attracts me to it is that the Paddleboxes are already moulded on, as opposed to their Talisman model which is bare hull.
Scale is 1:48, so nice and simple to get hold of fittings etc.

Also, with the Metcalf hull you can buy the ready made to fit paddle set from Graupner ( made for their "Glasgow" paddle tug ) which fit in very nicely to the paddle boxes. these sets are regularly seen on ebay

No tanker here but a fair range of cargo ships (and tugs + cruise ships)
in 1/100 and 1/50.

Very interesting range, good quality hulls.

If you want a complete model (painted, ready for R/C integration or display) I have a coaster in 1/100 and a tanker in 1/200 from my partner's production line. very nice models. Interested pls pm me.

oh to be able to speak and understand german language Valery. there are some lovely models on that site, especially the large Titanic and the more diminutive Norwiegian Fjiord steamer. does he actually sell the plans and hulls for these ships.cheers,neil.
