Fiberglass Schooner Hull search
Does anyone know if anyone out there makes a fiberglass hull of the schooner America.
I have found the Bluenose and the Malabar both from Hartman models.
And I found the Grand Banks Schooner hull from Kingston models.
And thats all well and good. I mean ultimatly I really want a schooner. And ofcourse I can rig any hull any way I want I suppose.
But at the core, what I really want is the America. And as I have quite nearly resigned myself to the fact that creating a hull is a little bit beyond my current capabilities, I am seeking a fiberglass hull.
PLEASE HELP !! if you know of anyone or anywhere that I can find this hull, please let me know.
Thank you all for your time.

Making a hull is probably the easiest part of building a working model.
Take a look at how I made a 5 foot frigate hull from ripped down pine boards. Keep in mind you can buy 1/8" thick balsa, cut it into 3/8" wide strips, and do the same thing without any power tools. Plank it up, fill and sand it, glass it inside and out with tight, light cloth, and you've got a hull. My Pride of Baltimore was built about the same way and has no frames in it. CaptMSR built his Son of Erin, a schooner of about 30" with balsa planks and frames he left in, and he's about to start a 46" schooner hull built the same way.
Think of the cool radio you can buy with the money you save building it yourself.
