50+ mph Traxxas M41 Widebody Catamaran

Traxxas reproduced the full-size catamaran hull so the r/c version has similar styling and characteristics, delivering the driver speed and stability. Taking a look at the details, it seems Traxxas may have done a pretty good job, but you won't find any carbon fiber as it's an ABS hull, which is somewhat expected at this price point. It's clear the speed should be there, so the question may be how well it handles different water conditions.

The World Models 1/6 Scale Piper Pawnee: A Kit Review – Part One – Building the Airframe

The Piper Pawnee has been a long-time favorite among modelers of all types, and especially those interested in Agricultural aircraft. I myself am a huge fan of these aerial applicators! The Pawnee is kind of like a low-wing Cub – It flies well, carries a lot of weight, and does its job very well! While some may argue that the Air tractors and Ag-Wagons look better, I have always liked the Pawnee’s distinct appearance best!

With the advent of larger and more technically advanced ag planes, the Pawnee has lived on as a banner and glider towing aircraft – while they enjoy retirement from spraying, kick back and enjoy this kit-build review of a classic aircraft!

You have to read this review of the Tamiya Porsche Jägermeister Celebrating Tamiya’s 40th Anniversary

It’s difficult to believe Tamiya has been in the RC car industry as long as I’ve been alive, 40 years, but they have. To celebrate those 40 years, Tamiya has released an on road car with a Porsche Turbo RSR 934 body. This, of course, was to commemorate their first RC car to hit the market, which was also a Porsche 934 RSR. Now, the original Tamiya Porsche 934 was clothed in different sponsorships and had a completely different chassis. The original chassis was more of a sheet metal aluminum design, but must have been really cool for 1976.

Let’s take a look at Tamiya’s new, 40th Anniversary edition, Porsche Turbo 934 RSR Jagermeister kit.

As with other Tamiya kits, the box is well designed with beautiful artwork. Inside the box are many individual parts bags, which house parts trees, hardware, and many other goodies. We’ll take a look in a minute at what is included with this kit, but first, let’s look at what you’ll need to complete it.
