RE: How will the engines survive in future?

Our club in northeast Mass. coexists with electrics, glow, and some gas. We have old-timers with electric and newcomers with glow, and vice-versa, with mutual respect. But the fields keep getting...

RE: Gauging interest, Hellcat group build

Cloning

I traded messages with Dave at DPCMODELS. He will give me a quote on cloning a Sterling Tri-Pacer. I'll report back what the results are. He has some very nice WWI models for sale.
