Awesome looking models…

I’m not sure the scale, but I ‘d love to know how he got those tiny guns to turn…

They’re awfully fast though…

Thanks for the comment , it is the cheap vintage Revell 1/426 scale. I modified a 1 dollar alarm clock gear box ( or any tiny gear box) & add a pair of gears & a small motor. I did not expect the hull of this grandfather battleship to be so streamlined that it could run so fast. It is easy to slow it down though by adding a few diodes if one so desires
