RC Helicopter flying, RC Cars and RC boating

Made for other people and me to track what I am doing when with my remote controlled units. It started out with helicopters. Hence the name.

If only one of my units is of interest, this unit can be clicked on the right and only posts regarding that unit shows up.

Tamiya Yamato

Tamiya 1/350 Yamato battleship Posted on Mar 31, 2011 14:05:48

Last Saturday I was gifted with a 1/350 Yamato battleship smiley Some big battleship that is. A bit shorter than USS New Jersey but somewhat wider. The propeller shafts should be easier to mount than in New Jersey. The rudder installation is however quite interesting and might be tricky to get working right if it is to be authentic.

More info on the real thing on wikipedia:

I know that Eduard has a photo etch set for this boat. That will probably make it look quite good.

Sovremenny gift :)

Trumpeter 1/200 Sovremenny Posted on Mar 31, 2011 13:59:09

Last Saturday I celebrated my birthday and I was presented with two new boats. One of them was a Trumpeter 1/200 Sovremenny class Russian destroyer. Not so much to say about it yet. It has an exceptionally large amount of small parts and I believe it can look good if built well.

Here is a reference to wikipedia:

I have also found out that a photo etch set is available from White Ensign Models.

Some project this can be smiley
