    RE: P-40 found

    Just goes to show how effective camo can be.
    Hope they find the pilot's remains, like the guys from the Lady Be Good, he probably won't be too far from his plane.
  4. RE: 1/72 scale Rc Warship combat in Argentina

    Nice!
    I battle 1/144 scale in Australia, and have a HMS Rodney with all nine main cannon firing in salvo mode.

    RE: What was your first R/C

    Mine was a Tamiya Frog.
    Yeah, I'm that old.
    Ended up with a Tamiya esc and an O5R stock motor with (wait for it) a 1800Mah nicad battery!

    Fish Attack!

    Well, it finally happened.
    After sharing our pond with various denizens of the deep, one of them tried to board a ship.
    It happened so quickly, we weren't sure we'd actually seen what we had seen,...

    RE: Caracciolo class BB

    Gas for the power source but not just used as a rocket-type thruster.

    Turbine.
