Use your imagination. You don't need battleships for ramming (and many clubs that do warship combat prohibit rramming in their rules). If you are going to control them, you will need radios/servos, etc., but they need not be expensive. Surely, by 13, you have an old R/C car or boat or two you can scavange from? Be sure to waterproof, though.

Of course, the story is that the hobby got started by taking powered models with no radios, tying a string to an anchor so that they would just sail in circles, and then shoot them up with BB guns. More or less destroys the model.

For the actual warship combat, I recommend following the Big Guns Model Warship group (Big Gun format) or the IRCWCC group (Small or Fast Gun format) on Yahoo, and visiting web sites. I understand there are fledgling clubs starting in AZ and NM, but I don't know much about them. You can certainly visit our site for links to get you started.

I just reread your post. AR, not AZ, sorry. There was a Fast Gun battle there a couple of weekends ago in Siloam Springs. Don't know how often they battle there. And, the NTXBG is not too far from some places in AR (it battles monthly, just SE of Dallas, Texas). I would look for the closest club and check it out. It is not that $ intensive to get started, especially with a transport, and not terribly $ intensive to keep a ship on the pond.

Keep in mind that there are transports, like the Komet and the Kormoran, that are relatively cheap to build as transports in 1:144 scale, and they can later be armed as raiders (at least in Big Gun) to compete in other clubs. However, do what you find fun - that is the main point, after all.
