    so i am luck enough to have a 3d printer so i thought lets get it involved with the build so first addition is the marker lights and blinkers easy enough as seen in the pics it will be lit so holes drilled into the fly bridge sides to let the bulbs in also and with the film version there is a metal tube running from the fly-bridge through the roof down to the internal controls so ive simulated this with a printed tube and then drilled a hole in the cabin roof the idea here is so any electrical s up here ie marker lights and the control panel and the spot light wires can all be hidden and routed through here which will come out at the bottom of the cabin๐Ÿ‘or thats the plan a
    .. i have also measured up and printed a control panel and shelving for the fly-bridge as you can see it incorporates skirting so you wont see were the marker light wires will run

    Very nicely done, looking forward to seeing her finished. My Orca is presently awaiting a refit in the "shipyard "after some electrical issues and a near fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ˜œ

    i have now started to construct the flying bridge basic ply construction the a bit of mahogany planking on the outside with some trimming i will on the next part install the marker light carriers and control column and shelf at the front the idea was to install this permanent to the super structure roof but i have decided to bolt it down so i can remove later if ever needed๐Ÿ‘

    here we have the front window frames installed as you will remember in the film these are hinged as Brody climbs out of them in the end once the orca was sinking
    i have also installed the front cabin roofs and sides here
    last pic shows the small side lockers installed i did these out of a small block of Balsa and grooved them the added a ply lid
    all fitted looks real snug against the side walkways
    its really starting to look a lot better know
    before i forget the main roof and super structure sides have now got beading once painted it will all become one

    on this next part i lined and stained the rear deck flooring adding in the hatch as you remember the rear floor comes away with the superstructure to give me more work room inside the hull
    i also made the cabin door this will be hinged and operable

    so to carry on ive started to install an interior just the basics to start here so cabinet doors lower cabin doors controls etc to come later i have stained all the wood in a dark oak colour as you will see in the pictures .. remember the floor is removable so i can clean interior easier later

    as you can see success๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ brilliant
    as you can see through the windows on the last pic i will be covering up the forward bulkhead with the interior controls
    also worked having the longer prop tube the motor will not interfere with any of the cabin interior and sits low enough for the floor not to be compromised ๐Ÿ‘

    so here it is so far main part done and sized to fit the hull as you can see i have made this all one part . it will now allow me access to the full hull interior this way i have also added the inside walls as the plans didnt show this plus i dont think the particular plans go with an interior but i want one so the idea will be to fit the interior controls interior cabin door and side cabinets in here then once i figure out how im going to do it ill install a removable floor containing the seats and the table that should butt up to the forward controls and cabinets .. this way i can remove the floor for cleaning purposes as time goes on also to note the rear open deck is attached lets all now see if my method has worked ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ive now fitted the 3d printed parts to the transom and gave it a quick coat of grey primer before i move on to start on the superstructure seeings as this is my first scratch from plans it gives no idea on how do i want to get into the workings after the super structure is on so some forward thinking is needed notice the rear most bulkhead top cross section is now cut away dont worry there is method to my madness here i think๐Ÿ˜œ but seeing the the bulk heads are about 20mm thick it wont cause structural problems to the hull also notice ive added a couple of supports to the rear open deck idea here being as it looks here i should be able to have this much access once finishes

    at this stage i have gone over the whole hull exterior with some Filler Primer this i do this to give me an idea of any imperfections that need dealing with this is then smoothed out ready for other parts to be added to outer hull .
    also and lucky for me i have my 3d printer i did the name plate for the stern and the trim to give it the illusion of curved rear i presume. This was in the plans i did this 3d printed as id need a really bendy piece of timber to recreate this looks odd though now but lets see what its like when painted๐Ÿ‘
