Models by Design produce a hull.
There was a kit made but was only about 18 inches long.

the models by design hull is 1:38th scale (a strange scale)
but It is a great model for sailing with plenty of room inside yet a reasonable size for the car

you need to build all of the model as there are no fittings for it  :-))

Hi! Wallace,
I have Copy drawings of HMS Nurton, but I must warn you she was a "Mine Hunter" not a Sweeper.
If you want them I can lend you them but as already stated you will have to make all the fittings and the boat from Scratch.
I am building HMS Maxton as you know. (NBMBC member) Bill

Nurton was a sweeper as all of the Ton Class were.
Some were converted to Hunters The sweep winch
and the pulse genny were taken off and the
diving equipment stores were fitted
Tiger Tails were fitted on the Bridge Roof

There is a 1:24 scale model in the market.
Probably made by Vipo Deck Co ltd.

If you want me to find out - just let me know.

I have built HMS Kirkliston to 1/48 scale using a Sirmar Hull (sadly no longer available) and the Jacobin plans for HMS NUrton , i Had a lot of changes to make to build Kirkliston and used my own photos from when I served on her and internet research . Kirkliston was the first Ton to be converted to the minehunter role . The model looks great and performs well on the water .
