Si Fi Project Idea!

Postby Bigdave » Mon Sep 21, 2009 5:37 pm

While talking to Mr. SiFi sub Rick Teskey over the weekend at our fun run he presented me with an idea of a possible project.
Rick told me about the new large scale Jupiter-2 kit that is rumored to be coming out. 8)
They are saying it will have an 18" diameter. :shock:
That would make it a good sized model :?:
Rick said have you thought of R/C-ing the new J2 kit, and I said what J2 kit?? :oops: :lol:
I don't get out much :cry:
I said to him how would you do that??
Then Rick started to explain his approach to making this work and I said
I LIKE IT!!! 8) 8)
Very cool idea.
I will not spill the beans on Rick's idea, but I may just barrow his idea and run with it!! :D :lol:
My thing is making an idea work. Or trying anyway. :roll:
But as the kit is not even out yet it is just a possible idea, not even a real idea at all!!
Yea!! That’s the ticket!!! It was my idea all along!!
Mine I tell you!!!! Mine Mine Mine!!!!! Ha!!!!!
BTW-Thanks Rick for the cool idea!! 8) BD.

Yeah BD, DO IT! You clearly have a shortage of projects and far too much time on your hands.Image

I wish I could just get back to my 1701 but I have this job for a change making a space capsule for a model rocket company.

So you must you must.

There are quite a few kits to use as guides for some other under sea objects (AKA submerged UFO's). I've been thinking of doing something like a Buck Rogers/Flash Gordon style space ship or modifying/enlarging the Pegasus Hobbies APOLLO 27 rocket.

Get yourself an appropriate tupper-ware bowl and start mocking up a flying saucer submarine. Or foam form it
like the tooting tug.

Hey Big Dave, since your into R&D, do you want to mock up a sub unit like the chinese omni diretional pump unit for a Polar Lights 1/350 Star Ship Enterprise for me? I sent you a PM.
Beware Steve Neills, one day our common fleet may meet.
