Wood model kits?

Anyone know of any model kit providers that produce wood trawler kits or plans?

It is pricey, $ I think around a grand for the Fiberglass hull. One of the guys I work with built one several years ago, along with a barge to be towed by radio control.

A friend of mine builds scale models for a living. They are BEAUTIFUL to be sure, but not the cheapest.

Thanks, everyone! Looking for self-build kits primarily. Looks like some of these are kits but others are completed models.
