Possibly the most realistic LEGO model boat I've ever seen!

Fantastic but unless I'm mistaken your pics show lots of bits manipulated into shape in many places. I'm questioning this as a pure Lego model.

It's covered in S.N.O.T   :o


Using angle pieces so they can use Studs Not On Top to give a smoother outside - it gives a 1/3 brick resolution.   :-))

All the parts are standard Lego parts - and also quite standard ways of using the parts - those handrails are part of the pneumatic sets and also used for providing curved edges on lots of models.     (I'm a bit of a Lego nerd - I've got tons of Technical Lego and my wife is into the Lego train-sets and the themed models like the Harry Potter sets).

These look like similar rails.. Although I would have to say they do seem very long and I can not see any joints on the model..  But still pretty good.
