Fourth Element is creating animated tours of the Scapa Flow wrecks.

With help from partner company 3deep, the Helston-based divewear manufacturer will produce 3D guides for use on the web.

The project is a collaboration between Fourth Element and the Scapa Flow Landscape Partnership Scheme, the Orkney Dive Boat Owners Association and Orkney Marine Archaeological Forum.

help resurrect the Scapa Flow wrecks

Graphic design guru Mike Postons of 3deep has worked with the company before to produce 3D wreck tours. But for this project, they need your help.

Divers with photographs of the Scapa Flow wrecks are asked to submit them to help with a design reconstruction. Obviously the clearer the better, and they’ll be particularly useful if they show features, layouts or any unusual detail.

You can submit your Scapa pics via the Fourth Element website, noting where it was taken and adding any useful descriptions at the same time.

For your trouble, the most helpful contributor will win a week for two aboard Scapa Flow liveaboard Radiant Queen. Runners-up prizes include ‘Flow diving on another vessel and Fourth Element goodies.

So if you think you can help resurrect the Scapa Flow wrecks – in 3D at least – have a dig through your pics and send them in before 30th April 2012.
