Mirage 29 “Wolverine”

Mirage “Wolverine”

My latest completion, a 1:9 scale model of a 29 foot Mirage, the S-793 “Wolverine”. The full size boat has recently been restored by her owners, but was originally campaigned in the 80’s by Pete Smith, of the well known Smith Brothers Offshore Racing Team.

The unorthodox scale comes from building the model on an available fiberglass R/C hull of about 39″ length. The entire cockpit and coaming were built up to match the subject. Almost all details, from the instrument bezels to the bolster and the outdrives, were made with 3D Printing technology. Markings are a combination of custom printed waterslide decals and multi-layer cut vinyl.
