Thanks Carl & Mike. Was painted 95% with just a small sponge. I'm impressed with this technique.

Frank, Yep they are a nice looking cabin, and I wanted something a bit different. I think he's hooked more than a tiddler.

Kevin, that was a classic line from a great movie.


There are some very nice large scale RC models of the ORCA you can buy. Tempted ?

Wheel house is assembled. Not sure what I'll do with the upper deck yet. Sometimes they are an open bridge, with a wheel etc, but some are just for observation.
Still needs a railing around it.





The recessed section is where a ladder will be installed.
And thought I'd do a nautical looking, different shaped door at the back. Just 'cause I can

Rob,
Looks like you just cannot get enough of these boats. This is coming along nicely, I like the weathered wheel house. I can almost smell the salt air.

How much for the R/C model and is it already built? The wheel house is coming along nicely Rob.

Absolutely fascinating to see your work on all these boats. Detail after detail, great.

I like the rounded-off corners on the door...really looks good, and very fitting.

Thanks All. Slow progress, but going along OK. Hopefully a small update soon.

Greg, yes I'm enjoying these boats. I'm enjoying doing rust. Not too overdone though.

Mike, the RC ORCA's come as kits or built up.
From a couple of hundred to $1500. Too rich for me.

Thanks Michael, Jim & Horton. Happy you're still following along.
Doing a lot of research and referencing a lot of photos. Probably too much time on the Net, instead of modelling.

Added the gunwale (upper edge) to the boat. Lots of clamping.


And added some colour to the hull. Masked off and applied with a sponge.




And have made up a drum winch. Similar to the other boat, but a bit different.
Again used caps off the Exacto blade tube for the drums. The rest is styrene
Not 100% prototypical, just going for a mechanical look.
Not painted as yet, and still need to add brake wheels and cables.

Thanks carl, Frank & Ted.
I only got onto the sponge technique last year after watching Jason Jensen youtube videos.
Now it's my go to method.

I've painted the winch in a gloss crimson red, then weathered.
Still have to attach the brake wheels.







And here's my deck arrangement.
