    COOL. Having that puppy as a radio control boat would ROCK. but you'd HAVE to get a radio control shark to go with it.

    I like the shark cage.

    ....FAIR Spanish ladies....... :p

    Nitpicking aside, this is a real must have.

    If the price is right.....They'll probably say it's $10,000 dollars...for that you get get the bow, the stern...the whole * thing.... :D

    Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women.

    That looks like a great model, but there appears to be quite a bit of scratchbuilding involved for the chair, fishing poles, etc.

    Hopefully that'll keep the price reasonable.

    I'm not really a model-builder, so there's a good chance my opinion means squat; but THAT is AWESOME.

    Its funny -- the MacFarlane toy has a better finish on it than I could do. But this one looks to be three to four times bigger.

    Does anyone have any more info on this, like price, when and where? I emailed the address on the PDF, but I haven't heard anything back.

    Agreed. My impression from the ad is that the parts they are calling "accessories" (chair, fishing poles, bunks, cage, etc.) are not included in the kit. And, of course, without all those "accessories," the Orca will look distinctly different than what we see in the film.

    That said, it does look like a very cool model. Thanks for posting the link. :thumbsup

    I know the guys from delmac, I will find out if this project is still a go or not.

    I know they have been busy with stuff recently, which may have put this on hold.

    OK, here is the situation with this model - Delmac asked me to post this here on their behalf, some personal info has been edited out by me:

    So if Chuck is happy to have the molds used, it is possible delmac will still make a kit available.
