It's almost ready! Here are pixs of Rick's actual plug, shown next to my in-progress Seaview at the 2009 SubRegatta for comparison. The Manta fins have been thinned and reshaped, the sonar blisters removed, and the turtledeck moved forward. Looks like he just needs to cut in the windows where he penciled them in, and it should be ready to mold.
