Famed Model Maker Greg Rice just finished the model of fellow Woody Boater Syd Marsden’s Black Witch. Holey COW! Wow. Greg does amazing work, and we have seen his detailed work on Thunderbird and Lockpat II, but to see it on a more humble Hacker is amazing. And in some odd way, in my mind far harder to pull off. When you have a simple design, there is less you can do to compensate.
This model like all of Greg’s are no compromise. Even the grain in the seats.
Life jackets are a wonderful nod to Syd’s history in the Coast Guard. Love it!
Even the grain feels proportionate. This is always a bugaboo for me. This grain is perfect’
Here is some of Greg Rices other work.
