I wonder how much they would want for just the shell.

That is pretty neat. I wonder if its a customized version of the Pro Boat PT-109 model or something different?

The model made by Pro Boat was available about 10 years ago and I want to say cost well under $500. It was about 4 feet long, so was technically smaller than 1:18, but not by much, and did look good with the figures. A former member from here, Red, had one he would use in some of his excellent USMC dioramas.
