Very nice! I see Riley is a "chip", eh?

Beautiful way to start him off in modeling. Well done Russell.

Habanero Sir, you'll have to have a TV and Playstation running nearby, he likes to slide off and play shooting and Killing games every 15 mins.

No staying power these young 'uns!

Russell,

That's a great way to spend time with your son. Before you know it he will be married with a kid.

Ed,

Let him get a few builds under his belt first, modeling over summer vacation ahh those were the days some balsa, some CA, a little bass and what ever you could scrounge for power.

Riley,

Good job! Enjoy what you have created with your dad.

Good job Riley! That looks fantastic. You'll be surprised how you'll use what you've learned on future projects and assignments. Always remember that you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to. Once again, great job!

Thanks guys,
It's a bit tricky this NON R/C boating! they can go in all directions??
It pays to have an R/C boat on hand to nudge them in the right direction occasionally
