Try a Clapton model for a Modified V neck. They're readily available. And as previously mentioned, the D-18GE has a modified V neck profile as do some Authentics, the HD-28V, and a few others. Try enough and you'll find that there are some differences in Modified V necks. I have two dreads with the modified V and each is a bit different. I believe they get individual attention when carved. Also based on the string spacing at the bridge, one neck might be a bit wider/narrower at the 12th fret.

I liked the Clapton carve and string spacing, so even though that's a short scale guitar I had my Custom Shop dread spec'd the same regarding neck shape and bridge spacing. No regrets at all.
