Model boating on Facebook

I get some neat pictures of models coming across the News Feed on Facebook. Mostly static models or dioramas. Thought I would post some once in a while.

The Calypso checking out a sunken U-boat. Too bad there was no solid background to block out the busy background.



Just because I like WWII German warships.

Hope they don't mind having pics posted. Michigan Scale Model Boat Club. These might look familiar.

Tim, that is a real PBY. Abandoned in Saudi Arabia. I'm surprised someone does not take it for restoration.

That PBY has been there a while, and was still pretty new when it was abandoned.

Wonder if posting pics from their page here had anything to do with this? Or just a coincidence?
