Graphic Notes: This is by far one of my favorite "re-draws" by Brad. It captures the original look of the Remora - no small thing - while updating and standardizing the entire look of the vessel. So wonderfully redone is this graphic that I haven't even liked to the original FASA design. Feel free to jump to Brad's site to take a look at the original.
