Default Kit cutters

I was building airplanes for a number of years, now back to boats. With larger airplanes, it is common to have a "short kit" made from plans by a kit cutting company. I assume there are some that do larger ships as well, does anyone have some links?

Interested in tall ships 1650-1820, commercial oilers/passenger 1880-1965. Hull lengths greater than 50".

Some cutters will accept a CAD file, others will ask that you send the plans. Either way, you will get what you want. I've had good results from this source: http://lazer-works.com
