Default Not really a ship...but

Hey all,
Never posted on this forum but I have done a lot of research on it and been coached by Kotori about the gun systems on your ships. I'm mostly into RC tanks but they don't really shoot and I think that's a pretty important function. After quite a few tries trying to reinvent the wheel I came across you guys. I install CO2 guns in my tanks now. Here's a few pic's. Really difficult to fit them into a 1/16 scale tank but then again, they never sink.

Just to head some off at the pass, I follow all safety precautions and shoot them while alone on my rather large parcel of land.

Although not a ship I thought some might find it interesting since you were the progenator.

Doesn't Sink? That removes half the fun! ;-)
Remember the sink is a temporary condition, as the ship is designed to be retrieved, patched, and battled some more. We have had ships sunk and rebattled 4-5 times in the same day. Embrace the sink!

As for safety, one of the safety features of shooting on the water is that the range is generally limited. With the guns only a couple of inches over the water, and unable to elevate above the horizontal (and usually depressed to a range of only a couple of feet) the water (usually) acts as a bullet stop. Occasionally, we get a skip or ricochet off a deck and OUCH! In your case, on ground, I am thinking the chance of ricochets is much higher.

It is creative, though, if you have an end use envisioned (or even if not). Thanks for sharing it with us.

That KT turret look like it has a lot more space! Nice to see photos of all your projects in one place. You didn't arm that SU-100, did you? Also, could you provide the link to your videos?

Perry,
Is that tank a kit? And if so, where from?

THe King Tiger is a Tamiya. The Tiger 1 is a Heng Long. The T-34 is a WSM. They are all kiys. THe Tamiya is expensive (by tank standards, $500). The other two were about $70 each. Of course they are all pretty heavily modded. The Heng Long tanks come with a built in airsoft gun but it is not very powerful so I install my own.
