    Great fun! If any tank (HL or 1/1) was worthy of being called a hot rod, it would be the M-41. Any other tank at these speeds would look preposterous.
    Would love to hear not music but the...

    Found a multitude of WWII photos embedded in a thread from a site, of all things, related to video gaming (far as I can tell). These are all high res and of varied nature; armor, some air etc., most...

    Resuscitating old posts! Reading up on old stuff and I find there's no closure--so yes, GREAT BLOWER HOUSING (and cast armor too)! I've looked at enough of them, I should know. This is a Tamiya...

    Does losing the gun sound with the elimination of the "jerk-back function" (it's not recoil) apply to all Heng Long tanks?

    If so, there goes the idea that an upgrade to a newer tank would solve...

    My board doesn't look like that; mine is 9 years old! Looks nice though--cooling fan and all.

    What are "your" tanks like?

    For something as large as this kit and for the sake of authenticity, I would have powered all the props--there's supposed to be 3 so I'd have three props/three motors. It is perfectly feasible, it...

    This is a long shot, but did you ever take delivery of the sub from puremtc?

    Oh wow, are those the G-Factor props made specifically for the kit? If so, I'd heard that Ernie Gee (owner) has been made aware that his props are being used for more and more R/C plastic model...

    Find the same size as the kits props but get them in brass/bronze. G-Factor produces a set for the kit that could be adapted for RC (as they are just a static upgrade but in brass). Perhaps they can...

    My first gut feeling would be to recommend a pair of 30 mm props.

    However, an old rule of thumb about finding the best sized propellers is to match the diameter of the motor case to the size of...

    Also, had to share this on account of the seriously impressive water stream--and it is painted up as a fire boat. Shows how to build the pump and what components were used.

    In a roundabout way I came across pics of your Paul P. Hastings which lead to her sister ship the John R. Hayden. This tug is still in active service after several ownership changes and being...

    I am drawing a big blank on a CG fire boat. I thought the bona-fide, purpose-built fire boats were all operated by fire departments.


    Have you considered the AquaCraft Rescue 17?

    Looks like a fantastic outing. Part of the charm of model boating is the venue--real open water like lakes and ponds with clear water make all the difference. Boating in a swimming pool takes away...

    Yes, RR tug obvious from the Santa Fe logo. Yep.

    Pfft. A 45 inch tug would not be overkill but I think the size will help as far as rescue operations go. I wouldn't use a 14-18" tug but a 25-30" tug would certainly be adequate. Usually the tug is...

    See if you can find plans for it and build from scratch. Maybe a fittings kit would be the more difficult item to find. Or not. I think Dumas still sells the fittings kit.

    I never knew there was such a kit from HK. Very nice and as you said, it looks like a Fairey boat, a 28' Huntsman to be precise. All black ones were used by SPECTRE in an old James Bond flick called...

    2.4 GHz is for all models, surface or air. That's the beauty of it. Furthermore, there are no legal AIR versus SURFACE issues like there was with 72 (air only) and 75MHz (surface only).
