As part of my last job I had a SLA prototyping machine at my disposal. I had built a 3D computer model of the boat earlier and just had to simplify and scale it down. The stars and stripes are a sticker that I created everything else is painted plastic. The pictures don't show the underwater gear but, there is a rudder and prop made from .010 aluminum. Had have a friend who collects 1/64 scale models. He currently skies a Xstar of the same color and vintage as the 1/64 model from Ertl that was available a couple of years ago. The boat he had prior to that is the basis for the model here.
