    This is a project that I started after I finished the new "Bruce" shark sculpt it's Quint's boat the "Orca" I have gotten tired of the same old Sci-fi stuff and wanted to try something new. The model is based on Pat Tritle's plans but I scaled the model down to almost half the size from the prints in case I do decide to do a limited run of the shark and boat set. I started making the frame from styrene which got planked with basswood instead of Balsa the balsa is to flimsy for me and can be damaged easily while being handled, I got the cabin structure done over the 4th of July weekend still much to do on this.

    Looks good, but I think you need a bigger boat.

    I'll be keeping an eye on this

    I'd like to make an Orca at some stage but it looks like an awful lot of work.
    Your off to a great start Ray, Looking good
