Hi Bro,
I just wanted to share your USS Banning on Caveman_Dons Whitehall thread. Ever since I've seen your Banning, I've always wanted to build one and RC it. I hope you don't mind me showing off one of my favorite builds you've done.

Hi Jerry,

Your ship in beautiful, I can see you put a lot of work and detail into it.

The name of the ship caught my eye as I was scanning the build logs. I live in Banning Calif which is 20 miles west of Palm Springs. and located in a mountain pass. I did some research on the ship and sure enough it is named after the town of Banning. I was wondering if you have any connection to the town or the ship.

Life is full of surprise's

Ed

Thanks to Rebel 1 for bringing this completed ship to light. Missed it on the first go around.

Fantastic job, especially as I am a fan of these ships and the minesweeper variants as well.

Hi Ed,
I don't think Jerry has anything to do the the place you live. Jerry researches every one of the warship models he builds, so he can add the proper details and to choose a ship with a good service record.

Oooooo.....that's very tempting Bro!!! I have a soft spot for the PCE you built. I wish I'd saved all the photos you posted for the Banning. I especially loved the wood deck in the flying bridge.

What was the site you used for the Banning build thread. I can't remember what site it was. When I first saw the build, some of the photos were missing. I wonder if the rest of the photos are still up?
