Default My USS Missouri (Water Test)

I know UMI wanted to see a few picture's. So i fanally got them taken. Hope you enjoy. I finished installing the radio for it today. Now the hard part the Superstructure. The first one shows that i have to much speed. LOL The other two are a closer look. Also if you look in the first picture really good you can see the St Louis Arch in the background. Yes i live in the Downtown area.

They let you do that in the reflecting pool.............. and nobody chased you out.

I know that you just got in the water but have you given any thought to changing that single prop to quads.

Looks like you have a good start on the superstructure already.

You just have to keep plugging away at it.

Thanks for posting the pics! [8D]

Oh BTW the front Turret does shoot (water lol). I got a water pump hooked into it. Plus all of the 16" turret rotate. It's 55 1/2 inches long and it's one of the old Sterling model's. I got the hull off of a guy for 7.00 buck's plus 7.00 for the shipping and handing. So i believe i got a pretty good deal on it. I have a 6 channel surface radio installed. A old speed control (just a temp.) i had laying around and the batties i had where 9.6 volt's. As for the running me out. I dont think they mind. Shoot i play with my r/c car's down there sometime's plus i was there for a good hour or so. Also if they do ever ran me off i just go to UNion Station where i know the guys that run the paddle boat's> They love it when i bring one of my many boat's over. I post more pic's when i get them.
