    RE: Radio Controlled Amphicar

    I still have all the photos I took of a real Amphicar we had at work. I used these a lot when I made my model. If anyone needs a picture of a certain area, chances are I have it. Just let me know.

    RE: Radio Controlled Amphicar

    Why is it that everytime I post something on rc universe, I get all these spam emails from hookers the next day? Everytime. I may be done with rc universe.

    RE: Radio Controlled Amphicar

    My resized images seem to be kind of blurry. Let me know if you want a better quality example of any of them.

    RE: Radio Controlled Amphicar

    Ron is correct. I used marine pushrod seals. They worked great . The front dosen't leak, but the back does. Not through the seals, but through the half shafts I made. They are dog bone axels from an...

    RE: Radio Controlled Amphicar

    No, I don't have any plans for the Amphicar. It was scratch built. It is made mostly from 1/8 mahogony door skin and balsa wood. It is covered in fiberglass, and then primed and painted with...

    Our club participated in a hobby show in a local mall, last month. One of the members placed a coin in the gator's mouth, to see the people's reaction. Not long after, all the kids were asking mom...

    One of the other club members at our pond was mentioning that he hasn't seen as many birds hanging around anymore. The seagulls just circle around, spot the gator, and fly off !
