RE: Texas group still around?

RE: Texas group still around?

Don't worry too much speed, as in NTXBG, all transports get 22 knots as the minimum allowable. Even my little tramp steamer. Also, having a Titanic, I can tell you that with all 3 screws going...

RE: Texas group still around?

Interestingly, we have a contingent that commutes to the NTXBG battles from Round Rock, just north of Austin.

In Big Gun, transports can be a lot of fun (I drive several), in small/fast gun they...

RE: Help ? - Beginner of RC Warship's

Mostly right, HJ, though Small/Fast Gun and the most common Big Gun are both the same scale of ship - 1/144. There are variants of Big Gun in 1/96 and 1/72, for those who like destroyers and other...

RE: Robbe PT-15 RC-Torpedo Schnellboot Manual

First, Do you have a set of plans? Most of the combat ships come with few if any actual instructions other than plans.

Second, have you tried Robbe?

Third, this is the Warship Combat...

RE: combat submarines

Not so much as you might think. Remember, you are not on the sub, but on the shore. If your opponent cannot see your sub, you can't see your sub either. Add to that the very limited range of their...

RE: Forrest Sherman class destroyer

Jim,

My point was, if you build to a club's specs from the beginning, you can still build the non-combatant. But, if you later wish to copmete, you can use the ship you have already built, just...

RE: Forrest Sherman class destroyer

As hydrojunkie mentioned, it really depends on if you are trying to just build a running finescale or scale model, or are wanting to do R/C Model Warship Combat. If you are not sure what Model...

RE: USS Iowa BB-61

Why surprised? Pretty and unique ship (a one-off) with kind of interesting history. You left out the effect of the seizure of the Erin and the Agincourt on Turkey during the war.
