The Ordinance & Reconnaissance Covert Avenger is a specialised vehicle with multiple uses both in Military or Civilian environments. Also known as the O.R.C.A. Hover Bike, the vehicle is a single rider transport with a scramjet engine capable of speeds in excess of 180mph. Designed by the FUKUI:Kavanagh Corporation in 2089 the standard model has been the mainstay of remote transport needs on alien planets, with advanced fuel cell support and a range of expansion features or add-on components for specific requirements. The Military version features advanced shielding and weapon hardpoint mounted on the main chassis. The Civilian version provides enhanced speed capabilities and storage for equipment transport.

The HoverBike is capable of over 180mph powered by its scramjet engine. With stabilisation controls and advanced field dynamics to support and maintain the rider during flight, the HoverBike can travel over 500 miles before refueling.

Stabilisation and advanced graviton technology that was reverse-engineered from Flexani craft provide a comforting ride at high speeds, while sub-AI processing allows for rapid detection and collision response.

    Great fit of the parts, bubble free, clean casts and once assembled a beauty to look at. It was great fun to build and paint it! Looking forward on building the civilian version soon. 😀

    “Say that’s a nice bike…”

    There I was, fishing around the Wild House Models website for 1/35th and 1/32nd scale figures, whenI stumbled across a whale of a kit; The O.R.C.A. hover bike.

    My first impression of the kit: WHOA—!!! I have GOT to build this baby, immediately-if-not-sooner!!

    The O.R.C.A. is is an original design by the folks at Wild House Models under their “Hostile Realms” banner and it is as cool as they come!. Far beefier and more angular than the sleek speeder bikes featured in “Return of the Jedi,” the O.R.C.A. is utilitarian design that puts function over form, which is just how I like it. And this looks like one powerful mutha.

    The packaging is first rate with an ultra-slick multi-colored box complete with illustrations and photos of the vehicle as well as pictures of the built-up kit, both civilian and military versions. The top-opening box also contains backstory (“O.R.C.A.” stands for Ordinance & Reconnaissance Covert Avenger) along with some stats and features of this sci-fi “hog,” providing builders a peek into the background of the Hostile Realms universe…

    Opening the box, immediately serves up a dose of that “new hover bike smell.”— okay, maybe that’s just the creamy grey resin…

    This kit makes you want to immediately sweep all projects off of the workbench and start building! The box contains 50 or so resin parts, along with a very generous decal sheet.

    My kit arrived in the States from the U.K. in under a week, which was just dandy. The kit box was thoroughly protected within in a cocoon of bubble wrap ensconced inside a sturdy cardboard shipping box. Parts are packed in multiple ziplock bags.

    The resin parts are cleanly cast with no flaws, overpour, or air bubbles.

    As mentioned, the hover bike is 1/32nd scale, which makes the kit large enough to pack a lot of detail into, but not so big that it takes up all of your display case or a massive amount of shelf space. The scale also makes the kit compatible with 32nd scale aircraft and 35th military model accessories and figures, which is an added benefit. And just when you thought that we ran out of “cool!” given the scale 1/32nd, the bike and rider figure are also in scale with Wild Houses’ 54mm GAU line of white metal sci-fi figures. The GAU soldier, smuggler, and alien sniper figures would all fit perfectly into a diorama featuring the O.R.C.A as the centerpiece of the scene.

    Such is the nitty, so let’s get down with the gritty: Resin kit clean-up is one of my least favorite modeling tasks, a truly loathsome job not fit for man, nor beast. This is why I avoid most resin kits these days as I just cannot stand taking the time and safety precautions to saw off and sand large casting gates. Nope, no casting couch for me! Guess what: the O.R.C.A. hover bike kit is delightfully free of casting gates and such resin rubbish!! Yes builders, there are only a few small nubs to clean up which are just plain easy to eliminate quickly with a razor saw and a sanding stick. Follow this with a bath of Simple Green or favorite resin cleaner, and you are A-O-K to start building, Houston! My assumption is that well-known sci-fi caster, par excellence, BLAP! anticipated such surly attitude from modelers such as myself and mercifully took care of the heavy-lifting in advance.

    This, of course, allows one to dedicate the majority of your time and energy to building and painting the kit!! And this is how it should be!!!

    Instructions are as awesome and are printed in color on a heavy card stock fold out. Illustrations explain the assembly steps with notes on building either the military or civilian version of the bike. The second option to consider before starting assembly is whether the craft will be built in flight mode or parked mode, the latter featuring deployed lower landing gear and lower centerline kick stand.

    While some may think that my joy over the instructions was perhaps too much, having previously suffered through resin kits with no instructions at all or instructions that looked as if a five year old child had scrawled them, my satisfaction was indeed justified (and within the law, thank you).

    Given that Wild House seems to be a thoughtful bunch, the kit is designed around a hollow frame so that the builder can install an aftermarket lighting kit, either the light board available through Wild House website, or lighting which the modeler would supply. Furthermore, the instrument panel facia is molded clear so that enterprising modelers can light the dashboard up.

    Both the military and civilian versions are packed with an abundance of detail. Beyond that, there is plenty of room for adding details such as additional weapons, sensors, cargo slings or modules, etc. My evil plan is to use magnets to add additional shields to protect the rider as well as an additional sensor pod as well. The sky is literally the limit as to how this kit can be modified or customized.

    A hover bike rider figure is supplied, decked-out in a semi-armored flight suit with a small life support or communications backpack. Another nice touch that touched me is the choice of two heads, which are always better than one. The builder can select the head sporting vision enhancement goggles (and a healthy head of hair), or a cool-looking fully-enclosed helmet. Or, if you just can’t decide, you can pull out ye olde pin vise, drill a hole in the neck, and superglue a length of brass wire to each of the heads. This will allow you to swap heads to suit your ever-changing moods. The figure’s arms are molded to grip the bike’s steering controls, which is always helpful when handling a motor vehicle…ask me how I know.

    The supplied decal sheet is a generous one with many options, including stenciling, stripes, symbols and warnings. As the sheet contains TONS of decals, so there will be many leftovers for many future sci-fi builds. Nice going, Wild House!

    Given the smart engineering, clean casting, and relatively low parts count, I do feel this kit would be a great build for a modeler contemplating their first resin sci-fi kit. As for the experienced builder, the O.R.C.A. hover bike offers a myriad of detailing and customizing possibilities: military attack or scout bike, police bike, civilian racer, cargo hauler, futuristic biker gang, etc. The sky’s the limit with this great-looking kit!

    WARNING: if you are not careful, you will want to build two!!

    It’s been a long time since I’ve been this giddy about a kit — I am thrilled to have purchased the O.R.C.A. and cannot wait to get started on building and painting this whale of a kit!

    Stay tuned!
