Did Mobile Marine Models ever produce Hulls in Grey plain fiberglass?

All the hulls I've seen are produced in orange fibreglass. I understand this is meant to represent rust if the paint work is damaged.

If you think you have a copy please contact Brian in the morning as he will be very grateful of any info you can give him if it is a copy.
    as Dave has already said M.M.M  All have a numbered sticker  glassed to the inside. and the buyer is registered and Brian keeps a record.
                      Regards Howard.

yes, the first hulls were produced in grey, but Brian decided to change the colour so as any chips looked like rust. All MM hulls should have a sticker glassed into them.

Had a reply from Bryan, he thinks it's at least 20 years old possibly an original production Hull, least it's genuine  :-))
