OK guys I hated to do this, but I just got word from Pat Regan. Seems he wasn't ready for the photos to be released. I thought we were good, but apparently we crossed wires regarding the photo shoot.

Anyways...it was fun while it lasted, and I'm glad everyone got a kick out of the project. Thanks!!:-!

Thanks Guys!! Glad you're all diggin' the project.:-!:-!

Jason...they are amazingly exact when compared to the movie versions. No detail was over looked from the number of "rivets" on the helmet to the brand and model of the vintage knife hanging on the belt. Even the "underwater rifle" was built from Disney prop department blueprints. If it called for brass or hammered copper, the correct materials were used to ensure authenticity.

Pat's wife, Lynn Regan, was the chief photographer for this diving sequence. She did an amazing job, capturing the action and adventure of the "script". If not for her, it would have just been me trudging around, freaking out the fish.;-)

Paul...no giant squid, but there was an octopus sneaking around the lagoon. I can only imagine what was going through his head.:-d

Fantastic pictures! What are the gloves made of, and how were you able to keep the water out of the boots and gloves since both look like they are separate from the main body of the suit? Also, did you start your dive from land or were you somehow lowered into the water? Again, Great Photos!

Ty,

OK, let me see if I got this straight:

1. You went to Hawaii for "work"
2. Your "job" was to wear a reproduced diving suit from a Disney movie
3. You spent a lot of time at the bottom of the ocean - in Hawaii (thought I should emphasize that)
4. Someone took pictures of you doing all this.

HOW DO I GET A JOB LIKE THAT?? :-d:-d:-d

Hope you re-post the pics soon.

Cheers mate,

Avi
