Hi DCN, thank for the comments glad you like her, about the pulpit, no sir i didnt dry fit it i just eyed it and adjusted from there I do wish that i had dry fited and cut it out before I mounted the bowsplash it would have been faster .

Man that black hull just looks Great !

Congrats no leaks.

However, what Is missing is a large plastic predator in the test tank.

Pops, your Orca is about 1/12 scale. Shark City Ozark sells barrels in that scale.

No No No, I wish. Yes they are Trevor's. I've talked to Trevor about making a set, but he said the mold has worn out and he only has his set left. He's a hell of a nice guy! Very articulate and a pleasure to talk to.
I bought Diver4's heads. They're not bad, but nothing like Trevors. The closer i get to Finishing this behemoth the more i look at the actors and junk that was on her. 1/6 scale you can put so much detail. It's just a matter of how much. As my wife calls it, being anal. But it is fun to watch her eyes pop when i add something new.
