A little diesel motor - still attempting to refine my artistic abilities and the purple turned out to be so dark it's almost navy and I'm attempting to paint the rudder at the moment.

Thought I would start a thread for you to post pics of whatever models you have.So for starters here is my ESM Hurricane. Refinished & detailed up. Wingspan 1.8m power is a OS 120 4 stroke ( 20cc ).

Very nice , I love the detail

Hi Guys

 

Now I know this is for planes BUT !!!!!!! I do build and fly them and this little creation of my came from the plane building :} The idea came from flying my Catalina down at Narrabeen lakes. I was forever changing servos because of the saltwater, Once I worked out a way to waterproof the servos, Presto !!!!!!!!! for some reason I thought of building the shark. Let me know what you think. There is also a video of it swimming on youtube

 

Enjoy

 

Cheers

 

Rick

you guys are falling behind the yanks

That model belongs to Ali Machinchy. Ali is actually a pom not a yank, but those photos were taken the USA.

 

Ali is a professional model pilot who is paid to travel all over the world to fly displays. He also pays to have his models built for him. We can only dream about modelling ever being big enough to fund that sort of thing in Australia.

 

I met Ali at an event outside Brisbane in Feb 2013 that he was paid to attend. Nice guy and very down to earth considering his ability & what he has achieved.

Love seeing all this stuff, but still waiting to see an R/C scale model of the Dova Skylark alongside it's big brother..

 

You'd have to do that Mick! Could make a great photo.

 

Kind Regards

 

Planey.

I think I would do a model of our Sportstar before I would do one of the Skylark. The Skylark's T-tail would be a pain to build and the winglets would have to be made removable or the wing panels would be a pain to transport.

 

Cheers!

Finally flew this one a couple of weeks ago. It was started about five years ago, but I did not get serious about it until August last year.

 

Republic P-47 Thunderbolt. Wingspan 2.46m, weight 15.4 kg, powered by a Desert Aircraft 85cc 2 stroke. Painted in the colours of 134 Sqn of the RAF based in Burma in 1944.

Actually Ali is a Iranian, he and his father flew in the Jet World Masters for the Iranian team in Thailand, when I was in the Australian team. Thats when I met him back in 2000 I think it was. One hell of a nice guy he is too.
