    Nah, here's the modern way to create hulls (full ones, no less). Just need a big enough printer to print out the hulls:

    Doesn't look like a whale to me, however impressions originate in the eye of the beholder. The model appears to be full bodied and tucked up semi abruptly aft. That could be a little whale like. Actually some species of whales go pretty well.

    Yes, it looks like a whale or maybe the designer is just firmly planted in the late 1970's design trends . . .

    Considering that particular hull was designed in the mid 70's, it's understandable.
