    Here is my Steampunk Pike.
    She is still a work in progress.
    Eventually it will be static dive.
    Length 40"
    Width 11"
    Height 14"
    There is still a lot to do including weathering.

    Martin.

    Wonderful modelling, love the shape and detail.
    I must remember to carry my fishing gear if you ever sail in my area.
    Cheers Colin. ๐Ÿค—

    Absolutely brilliant Martin, you should bring it over (down under) to the Oamaru festival, I'm sure it would be a hit! Look out Captain Nemo!

    Staggering! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Doesn't need weathering Martin, looks great as she is, fantabulose!
    Look forward to the internals detail (Similar to your Gato?) and trials vid๐Ÿ‘
    '20,000 Leagues Under the Fishpond'.

    BTW; What do you feed it? ๐Ÿ˜
    Pikes have a nasty bite don't they?

    Colour looks coppery on my monitor Martin๐Ÿ‘
    Clean fresh copper is pink anyway.
    It just struck me that our very own 'Mactin', the recycled tin clockwork sub man, would be proud to have built that!๐Ÿ˜‰

    Marky; I'm assuming you mean 'biscuits' ๐Ÿ˜
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Believe it or not I am not really a sub type of guy.
    I have still got to finish my Gato and Cottesmore.
    But I want to make something really wacky.
    I have something in mind but I need to work a few things out to see if it will work.

    Oh no! Another Morse Code 'paper chase'!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    How about binary or hex code this time Martin? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
    0011 1001 0001 1111 - 0100 1111 10101 0111 ๐Ÿ˜Ž
    (Binary equivalents of the number of the letters in the alphabet๐Ÿ˜)
    BTW: You don't HAVE to be wacky to build models, but it helps!๐Ÿ˜‰
    (You'll probably end up wacky anyway!)

    Cats of course Doug, they ruin our garden and are always after my fish. The dog does his best, but he can't always be outside. I'd rather the local otters at least they only visit a couple of times each year.
    Cheers Colin.

    What a great model Martin - feel like a total amateur when I look at something like that . Build log is a good idea so we can see how its done.

    Are there many model trawlers on your lake? If so, you'd better be careful.
