Thanks H.
I've ordered some rigid dinghies from shapeways which I plan to hang from davits under my Boaty McBoatplane GB build but I also want a rubber dinghy lashed somewhere for emergencies.  The life raft dogsbody linked to above or the USS Gato dinghy you posted will both be ideal.  I just need to wait until pay day to order something.

Okay. If you want anything off UK Ebay I'm more than happy to bid on it for you and arrange shipping later if you want. Just let me know, but PLEASE send me a PM: I'm not on the forum as much as I used to be but PMs result in an e-mail coming through so I'm much more likely to spot them.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions.
I finally got paid and so have found what I wanted and placed an order with Shapeways.
Two of these (one for my larger Floaty McBoatplane GB build)...

I know you've got the boats you want Fred, but this is a useful thread for anyone else looking for such things, so let me add this link to Fleetscale's relevent page:

Hey Zenrat,

Did you get the zodiac in the Frosted Ultra Detail?  I was thinking of getting one of these for the GB as well.  Would you mind showing the quality once you get it?  I was curious if it was going to require any cleanup.

Thanks!

As a newbie to the world of shapeways I left the settings at default.  They haven't arrived yet but i'll post some pics when they do.  Apparently they are on the way.

And here they are.  The frosting looks like it could be a paint to clean up.
