Hey everyone.Im currently finishing up this 1/14 scale model of the Orca from Jaws.Ive taken alot of care in trying to get all the details correct,right down to the tiny knobs on items such as the galley lamp,etc..I also dod ALOT of research,so I could get the boat itself as accurate as possible.When completed,it will feature a 1/14 scale Quint figure (sculpted by my friend Palmer),as shown in pics.Ill post up WIP pics I get closer to completing it

I love that the boat is made of wood!
Really well done.

Curious how you chose 1/14th scale? A bit off the beaten path.

Thanks! I settled on 1/14 because it was the largest I could build and still be bale to ship via USPS,without crating it.Heres a few more WIP pics of the Orca

This... is amazing. Tell your friend Palmer he rocks. Don't get me wrong this whole thing is fantastic, but that sculpt is something else. Jaws in all honour, but without Quint that movie would be missing it's soul.

You should have built a bigger boat!
J.K.
It's actually the perfect size. Can't wait to see the more build pics. I've been wanting to do this myself. Is it going to be RC at all?

About a year ago someone was selling resin copies of Quint in 1/6 scale.
Yeah theres been some 1'6 scale figures out there for a few years.In fact I did a diorama using all 3 of them a few years ago.Im hoping to get Palmer to make the other cast,maybe in 1/12 scale
