Big Dave has completed my first of two orders....(I am getting a Big Dave Gato unit in April or May at the latest)
He has informed me that my Seaview unit is complete and getting ready to ship.
Lots of video and pics to come....I am so JUICED.

Junglelord! you are going to be known as the Seaview man! I will step aside as I only have one. You have how many? :D
There are OLD pilots and there are BOLD pilots but there are very few OLD BOLD pilots. MAG

I have four Moebius Seaviews, one is pure display and I am still toying around with making it a cutaway display model.
Three are RC, two are functional SNORT systems, the next Seaview and my new Gato will be RCABS from Big Dave.
I am going to get a Deboer Seaview and kick my ass for not getting the one that sold on this forum, last fall.
DOOH....that was a STEAL.
:cry:

I have high hopes to get my hands on this remake of the Seaview

I would also like one Disney Nautilus at some point.

My next endevor is to build a large Aircraft Carrier like the boys who do war games, from balsa plywood and fiberglass.

I found this, and I am inspired, to build my own next time at this scale.

So what defines Large Scale? Some say 1/96, 1/72, and 1/48. Well I have a 1/144 Carrier, she is significantly larger than the nect scale 1/350, Measuring in at 8 feet lin, 2 feet wide, and 2 feet from Keel to Mast. I woudl have to say she is large scale..

I got a 1/350 conversion going on with the Big E and I am getting a lot good advice from this thread

I found that the SNORT tube fits the Tamiya Enterprise perfectly.

I have been shown how to make a home made vector thrust system from the ball and socket of a underarm deoderent bottle.
LOL< HOW INGENIOUS.

That is for my Star Ship Enterprise project I have in mind.

Waiting on LEDs from China and I need to grab some paint...almost home free.
I have studied Steve Neills build and with Big Dave's CD I will have this baby together in no time.

I await the arrivial of the Gato.
:D

Its fun to have several things to fart around with.
