Boat builder wanted

I have been contacted by a fellow looking to have a boat model built. He is looking for some type of tanker hauler style model either one already built or willing to have one commissioned built. I believe non R/C, mainly to be a display piece in a maritime shipping company office. If anyone is interested, pm me and I will pass along his contact info. If this offer came a couple of years ago, I would have been all over it, but I have just gotten burned out on modeling and I will be starting medical treatments daily for the next several months due to a health set back.

Dumas has a few tanker style kits to get you started. I don't think he is interested in any one particular boat or ship.

Have him contact SD Modelmakers for a pro job. $100/inch seems to be the going rate.
