Virtual Laser Insanity

Here it is again: The virtual Laser. With extreme attention to detail. This time with textures. Who said virtual insanity? Whoa, it doesn't get much closer to the real thing than this:
The new Virtual Laser
It is so amazing, - I am left speechless and breathless; Feeling kinda dizzy. Actually, I'd better sit down and gaze for a few moments on this, the latest mesh build from Dutch Kain.
It looks so real...
The attention to detail is beyond anything that I've seen so far. This is really what mesh is all about. There seems to be almost no limits. (Provided you have enough time for fiddling with 3D tools). 
... it's hard to tell  it really isn't!
The sheets and the trimlines are all there. The blocks are there. Hiking strap is there as are all the fittings. Not only are they there; They continue to have amazing detail, - even when you zoom in.
Fittings, blocks, lines...
Here's a closer view of the kicker. Harken block and all. I would have chosen the lightweight carbon series from Harken; Don't like all that metal, - but that's not the important thing here.
More details
Some of those lines are probably overdimensioned; The kicker for instance, - it could have been a 2mm line, but hey... even when wearing gloves those thin lines will hurt your fingers, so a bit of overdimensioning is ok here.
Rear view
And it is not just the trimlines that are perfect; The rear end ain't too bad either. Note the fittings for the rudder. Disregard the irregularity in the hull shape. (For now).

Am I excited? You can bite your nose I am, but it doesn't yet sail. There is still work to be done; Under the hood. In the meantime, let's sail the Nacra. Mine's wating to the right, right outside the pictureframe.

PS: Here's the laser before texturing. Here's another virtual Laser.
PPS: While we're at it...
PPPS: Check this post about Renemarines Schokker, - the first boat I saw that really meshed out max.
