    Here is my newly finished "Orca" scratch built from the plans by Pat Tritle. she is 1:14 scale and about 35 inches length. First run out today and she went perfectly. The only thing I needed to do was add a little ballast in the stern as she was sitting slightly nose down at top speed, thats now been rectified. I will add more photos and perhaps a video next time out.

    But I am very pleased with how she's turned out, a definate keeper!

    Great looking boat. I still could hear them say β€œwe are going to need a bigger boat” when they say the shark”. Your boat weathering, figures and the attention to detail is perfect. This would be a gtreat boat at any show and sure to win a award. Nice job!
