I started building another Dumas Blue Fin Submarine. I had one a couple years back and regretted selling it. So I asked myself what I really wanted to build.

so I will be doing some sub building ...
I actually have the AKULA also and a few other boats I wouldn't mind constructing.

I have to many aircraft and can't sell them without giving them away, so I will just build up on another fleet.. Naval

this is the one I sold.. good running boat. simple...

the sailplane pilots at my local club have a winch, and were concerned about if the foamy KA-8 could handle it. Well it does.. and they they are actually quite surprised by it flying abilities.

This Saturday.. taking two planes.. one large twin electric and a small nitro plane. hope there's a good turn out. If you don't have a seaplane, just pick up a RTF at your local Hobbyshop. the FLyzone tidewater or Beaver, or the Icon from parkzone.
