I am the individual who has cut the hull masters for Matt Thor. One boat the Alpha in 1:72 scale and all the others in his line in 1:96 scale. The Permit, if I can remember correctly, I cut three masters over a two or three year period. What you are seeing in his line now are all new mold made from my second batch of blank hull masters. I have also cut several other boats for Matt that are not currently in his line. Early next year I will be doing a second foreign boat for him. Should mention that I have also cut many of the same hulls for Scale Shipyard, but not in the same scale, all have been 1:72. I have cut masters for others, and in all cases will not cut the same scale of a hull if it has already been done by me for another vendor. When a hull is ordered the vendor must supply me with their own plans, I do not use material supplied to me by another vendor.
