Hi,
This is one of my Orcas from Jaws, scratch built with detailing mainly from household bits and bobs - it is 26 inches long or about 1/24 scale. I also have made a more boxy shape version which has more room for RC gear. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone, Jaws is one of my favourite movies, never understood why these film companies dont allow boats to be made into kits as im sure this one would be popular
Cheers

This is fantastic! I love it, and man do I envy your skills! Jaws is also one of my favorite movies. I'm kinda surprised that there aren't any Orca kits out there.

BigGrin Found these on flea-bay, may be of interest to fans of the movie and they do look pretty cool and life likeDrool Love , although the postage is a bit steep.
