I'd like a Cigarette Hull

I'd like to make a model, i would like a RC cigarette and paint it like Limit up 77.

Is there a company that makes them! or has anyone got a cheap secondhand one.

PS you guys have a cool area here for little powerboats, Ive enjoyed viewing all your Photos!

Lady Nara was a 36', Limit Up was a 35' there were differences not only in the length if you want to keep it true to scale.

No. They're my dads (Scrutineer on here). The 40' Limit Up and 37' Peter Stuyvesant models are on display at Basildon Powerboat Museum, the 36' "I Like It Too" is currently having a refit and spruce up after a long lay-up in the loft. Pete Downie has the only 35' model my dad moulded. You've guessed it, liveried as Limit Up. The model of Dry Martini emigrated to Australia with its owner several years ago. In the model club there was also Eraf and Yellowdrama II, both 36'. All of the models saw use on the sea be it Plymouth or Canvey Island

Split can you post the pics bigger??

Shame the Lady Nara model has the wrong number! Black Tornado Marco would have liked the model with that number!
