  • What do you plan to accomplish in 2015

    Howdy Yall! Yep, in just a few hours itll be 2015. Maybe everyone could jump on board and add to this thread. What modeling projects do you plan on starting or finishing next year?
    As for me, they are many. To start with, my Skipjack needs her paint job completed and the install of her new motor finished, then she can receive further testing and finally put on display on one of my shelves in my room.
    The type 23 needs a stern dive plane servo swapped out and a paint job. Id like to get in some more run time as well.
    Then there is the Oscar. Ive got everything I need to begin the maneuvering thruster install. Also since she will share the same battery WTC as the Seaview, shell have to be set up to use the APC mounted in the Battery WTC as well.
    Of course the Seaview needs more testing. Whats new?
    Then there is the Albacore. She stands ready for the modification of her WTC into a hybrid 3"/ 3.5" in order to use 550 motors.With 3 cell Lipo power to boot, Im getting scared already. Hopefully, next year she'll receive another sail from the Dave Merriman/Caswell Empire to give me a working sail rudder.
    Lets not forget the UFO Skydiver that must be RCed and floated. So in short.....Ive got more on my plate than I can eat,. As my Dad used to say to us kids.....Your eyes are bigger than your stomach. How bout you?

    Suffer from same condition, eyes bigger than stomach.
    The line-up as I see it (and subject to change):
    Type XXIII mod 2
    type VII Revell 1/72 I have two to build
    Type IX
    Surcouf
    Israeli Dolphin
    finish Aluminaut
    Delta submersible
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

      Glad to see you are going to jump back in with that Type 23. Maybe a gas back up system might be in order. OH YEAH!! Dont be a dummy like me and run it out of gas.

          Peter W.....how are things on that side of the pond? Silly thing. Gas prices are going down big time. We are at about $2.25 per gallon here. How about over there?

                    Happy New Year and all that, We are at 112.9p per litre at the minute which is, if my maths is correct $6.65 a gallon. ( based on a US gallon being 3.78 litres per gallon ish ) that is down from about 1.50 ish a litre as a high. We are being ripped off big time over here! Oh and Diesel at the moment is even higher at a bout 1.20 a litre.

                      Ha!! If I made a resolution on finishing any of the ongoing projects, I would have to pick one. The main thing I want to do in my hobby life, is get at least one or two wet before April fools day. Getting two subdrivers in operation is the priority right now. An EZ 2.5 and a not so easy 3.5 Happy New Year Y'all
