Caleb's 4x4 Contest Round 1 -- Death of a Hero
About this creation
This is my entry for the first round of Caleb's 4x4 Contest. It is in the category "Death of a Hero".

If you've seen the movie, this one should be pretty self-explanatory. The MOC re-creates the infamous poster for the movie The Perfect Storm, a factual movie about the longline fishing boat Andrea Gail. This boat and her crew were caught in the devastating 1991 Halloween Nor'easter storm, and, despite vigorous efforts by the US and Canadian Coast Guards, neither the crew nor the ship were ever found -- they were presumed lost at sea. The MOC captures the final moments of Andrea Gail, before she was pitchpoled in 100-foot waves.

NOTE: The second picture somehow got corrupted after I originally loaded it. I have re-loaded so that it should be OK now.

Great skill in cramming such meaningfulness into a simple 4x4 vignette. I've seen the movie, great creation that explains it well.

Wow, this shows some serious skill. Really well done on that wave that is about to completely submerge that boat. Excellent work.

Quoting clayton Marchetti Brilliant Matt! I can't believe you squeezed this much story and detail of the Andrea Gail and her crew into a 4 x 4 entry. Can't wait to see what you build in round 2!
Thanks. I do have more than just a little familiarity with the Andrea Gail. I've done it before at minifig scale (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/356108) and at what I thought was micro scale (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/358062) -- at least until I did this MOC. I guess this one could be considered "nanoscale".

Quoting Abby Francis Okay, so this has to be one of my favorites! Absolutely a FANTASTIC build!
Quoting Caleb of Enalica Nice work, good luck!
Quoting Joe Pigg Rouge wave!
Thanks. As it turns out, this was actually my second choice for a build. I had a great idea for "Showdown" but I was getting frustrated trying to make it work. Maybe I'll resurrect the idea for Round 2, if I make it.

Quoting Petric G. Wow never seen such a nice micro boat! Great wave too!
Quoting Stephen Boe Very nice! I really like those waves!
Thanks, everyone! I'm glad you like it. This is actually the third MOC of mine that features the Andrea Gail -- I'm getting a lot of mileage out of that subject.
