AMERICAS CUP "J" BOAT OR 12 METER

Hi Folks,
I Have Never Posted A New Thread Before. I Have Done A Lot Of Looking And A Few Replies.
I Have A Desire To Build And Sail A Scale Model Of A "j" Boat Or 12 Meter Sail Boat. I Have The Ability To Scale Any Size Boat To The Appropriate Size. [approx. 36 -48 Inch Oal] All Of The Kits Or Plans I Have Seen So Far Do Not Fit The Bill.
My Question Is: Does Anyone Know Where Plans Exist For These Gorgeous Boats.
Thanks For Your Help.

I have looked into what is available ftom amya, as far as I can tell they do not offer 12 meter hull plans, and the j boat plans available are LARGE and pricey. Any other suggesrions? Taubman will scale thrir Endeavour to 5/16" to foot fairly reasonably. Do you have any experience with them?

Thanks,

Mike

Ref: Your Question: "Any other suggestions?" -

1) Keep looking and do searches on the web. (I've found a fair amount of sites that may fulfill your needs.)

2) Contact RC sailing clubs and their members.

3) Put a "WANT" Ad(s) up on RC web sites, in RC forums, etc.

No experience with Taubman.

Good Luck!

I purchased a set of plans from Taubman's a couple of years ago when they were still in NJ and service I recieved was great!
