Please message me if that interests you and we can work out the details. The Orca has a full mast pole, complete with shark tail spinner. But is visible in one photo.
Visit my Facebook page for more pics. Simply message me for direct link. Just wanted to point that out, so someone didnt think Quint was giant in relation to the Orca. Also the rudder is free moving and in the pics, its flipped forward.
But I assure you the boat has a full, accurate brass rudder! It isnt often that an opportunity to own an Orca replica presents itself.Especially one as nice as this one, complete with a Quint statue, sculpted by a true professional! This Orca was built using the best materials. Its made of mostly hardwood and put together with epoxy not just superglue, as alot of builders do. Oh and IT IS HEAVY at 7LBS. The hull was modified from an existing Orca hull and the cabin, etc.. Was all rebuilt from scratch! Thats about 1/3 the price it cost me to build it. Not to mention the countless hours spent. A run down of the details featured on this Orca and Quint: CABIN: The cabin on this Orca was recreated front, back, side to side, up and down, to exact precision.
Wherever possible I would actually print out photo's of the real Orca and simply trace the real boats cabin structure directly onto the wood, thus insuring this Orca would look like the boat seen on film and take the guess work out of it. The cabin even has the slight inward taper toward the top, just as the real boat had!
So no guesswork, no human error. Just perfectly replicated Orca parts that look as if they came straight from the film! All the details have been faithfully replicated, right down to the nails that hold the hull plates in place, to the tiniest of things, such as the hinge plate on top of the spot light. And, one of the neatest details on the Orca is the shark jaw on the front of the flybridge! Its been perfectly replicated right down to the tiny teeth and jaw bone detail!
PAINT: This is what really sets this boat off IMO. Sadly the pics only capture a fraction of what the paint actually looks like. I truly believe this is, out of all the boats Ive done over the years, my favorite paint job!
The paint on this Orca was done up with several layers of "washes" which gives the boat an ultra realistic, aged & dirty look. The dirt and stains appear as if they have been there for years and have dripped, soaked in and faded over time.The seagull poop appears as if its been there for months and has faded from the salt air, wind and rain. The blood on the transom from the chum bucket is faded, yet soaked into the paint, which makes it appear as though it has accumulated over the years without ever being washed clean. Areas of the boat that wouldnt have the heaviest foot traffic in real life, are dirtier and more warn than other area's, adding to the realism. The paint is detailed right down to the traces of the faded blue waterline, that was present when the Orca was still the "Warlock".
This was also visible on film in a few shots, but really hard to see. There is also tiny dried white specs all over the hull, that depicts dried salt water spray.. I also painted many of the parts with a special paint that has real iron dust in the paint and then added a salt solution which causes the paint to rust! I added a special clear coat over these areas to prevent further rusting.
QUINT: As mentioned above, Quint was sculpted by professional sculptor Palmer Murphy. He did production art for TVland. He was retained by HBO to sculpt a bronze memorial plaque commemorating six firefighters from Ladder Ten killed in the 9/11 attack.
He was also the subject of a documentary on sports channel MSG network and was interviewed on Fox and Friends by Fox TV Channel. Palmer's work has been on view at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and the Babe Ruth Museum in Baltimore.. Palmer did an amazing job on this Quint sculpt. Truly amazing work and Im honored he contacted me about combining our projects into one amazing scale piece of art! Quint is posed in the exact position he was on film, right after Brody said "your gonna need a bigger boat" and Quint stepped out of the Orcas cabin, and walked out to the stern.
Palmer captured everything perfectly, from the clothing (detailed right down to the laces on his coat and shoes), hand position, to the concerned/focused expression on his face while seeing the shark for the first time! HULL: Hull was built with hardwood. Giving this Orca a heft like no other! Some more info: This is a static model.The boat will be insured for 100% full value (except to some international countries as noted). Boat will be well packed and double boxed.
