Dave,

You have no idea how long I waited for that seagull %)

Xtian, running backwards is ok as long as its slow. The champagne was drunk well before the pics were taken - hence them not being straight!

Fantastic  Ian ! The end of your model is nearly close, Do you think it was a hard construction ? and in a near futur, will you publish your plan for model boat maker in a magazine?

Thanks fore the comments fella's.

DD - good question, what next. I have a little project under development at the moment, nowhere near as ambitious as the Orca, but its something new that I am not aware of being done before.

Gonna keep it under wraps for now until I can get a prototype in the water for testing, watch this space.

This was the hardest build I have attempted so far and the one that came nearest to getting a hammer through it in frustration. Having said that, it has also been the most satisfying for me, particularly after the maiden voyage which proved my hull design was ok - that was a relief after all that work!

I have no inclination at the moment to release a set of free plans.

Great model and great pictures! Do you think you will test her in some waves?? Would be interesting to see if she handles like the big ones with her design bow.
Thanks for showing, can't wait for your next build.

hi there Ian

As the Cornish say a proper job lad it looks really swell on the waster and worth all the effort you have put into it.  One of the good things about putting a build like this on Mayhem is that you can have a look right back to page 1 and where it all begins and read your first postings  :-)) {-) {-)
and just look at it now :-)) :-))

That looks super on the corporation pond Ian. Very well done indeed.  I hope to see it in the flesh one day.....I suppose it'd be more likely if we turned up more often  :embarrassed:

I am very surprised that no one has produced a commercial hull for this type of vessel yet, I think there would be a lot of interest.

Hello

It's a project with Graupner since many months but always postponed, now its for June 2012. Not sure but it looks to be a small 1/100  {:-{

I think it will be a RTR from Graupner Xtian. I think I would prefer to buy just the hull and scratch build the rest. :-)) :-))

I can now reveal that there will be a fibre glass hull commercially available within the next couple of weeks. I have been working with a partner for a few months to bring this out, it has been produced from my drawings, the plug was cnc machined to ensure proper reproduction.  The scale is 1:72 so it will be the same size as mine.

The intention is to launch (get it?..launch??) the hull and possibly a bridge structure at the Nationals show in Leicester, but that is to be confirmed in the next couple of days.

I have been waiting for the maiden voyage to confirm hull performance before going public on this.

I will certainly be interested in a hull Ian.

Put my name on the first one off the production line. :-))

Hi Guys

I read somewhere recently, and I think on a Bourbon Orca thread, somebody wanting a better view of the capsized Bourbon Dolphin.
The link has some footage towards the end (2min 15secs>) that is closer than the coast guards released picture (at least it's better than the one I saw)
