Nice fish abraquelebout, hopefully you will get as good picture as your ancient fish. I think it might will be time for me to post some pictures on my/our fish, in another thread of course.

Nice work Abra, congratulations!

I'm still undecided how to build my new fish. For sure it will be made of plastic. But I will wait until you post your results.

Good luck and best wishes
Harry

Sweet fish Abra!

It sure looks like it will work just fine. No snow on the ground, what season do you have now!? Here we use icebreakers when we scan  :)

Abra,

That is a great fish. Are you using materials that you have lying around? It would seem most of us build with whatever we have to hand, rather than choosing a particular material.
