Hi I sold this model quite a while ago, I think the hull is still available from Orion Mouldings. I was invited aboard the Amity about three years ago by Jimmy Buchan and took lots of photos. I did try and get a set of hull line drawings to build the hull myself but unfortunately Jimmy had none at the time.

Hi, yes have seen the hull on Orion Mouldings website, thinking about one as a winter project, enjoy drawing up plans for a model, sadly model no be up to the standard of yours, somebody got a cracker buying the Amity, did you finish model before selling?

unfortunately i never got her finished, too many builds at the time. to be honest I would have loved to build her at 1/12 scale this would make her just under 69 inches with a beam of 19.5 inches.

Going by the standard of your work It would have been great to have seen her finished, well impressed.
A 1/12 scale one a bit big for me, but would have been a chunk of a boat, I was thinking though, it would have been around 80"x 21-22" at 1/12 scale.

Must correct myself, at 1/12 scale Amity would be dimensions you said, so the Orion mouldings hull at 1/24 scale is not true scale as website says it's 41" long, and must admit when I saw full size boat I didn't think she was 82 feet in length.
