Since the first time I encountered a giant sea bass diving off a local beach, I became determined to add this fish to my collection of models. At first the model proved to be challenging to design due to the wide variety of available styles. However, I settled on boxpleating, a design style based on a square grid, which fits with the bulky, but elegant character of the fish. The repetition of design structures and attention to details throughout the model, combined with the refined wooded base, make this piece one of my most successful to date. Careful observation will reveal the underlying symmetries hidden within.
