Check these out - not too expensive, and they are in the same country as you (not half-way around the world).

Hello Howard
Thank you.
Across two boat builds I could possibly only need 8 or 10 at the present time.

I made mine up for 1/50 and had them printed at Shapeways. The dimensions are at actual size. They could be resized if required.
