    This thing is the exact same model as that produced under the "AquaCraft" banner. I got mine just before they went under. Railings are a soft metal PE, the 40 mms are really cheaped out, and the 20mms are even worse. Looks good from afar and is fast as hell!!!! Capable of chasing down RC race boats if you don't mind the rocking and rolling at high-speed!!! Sadly, no provisions made for upgrading stuff like running lights. In fact, the mast head light and some other stuff is completely missing off the mast. I still like it, though! It makes David twitch!!!! :) My set-up, per the manual, uses 4, 3000mah NIMH batteries wired in parallel.

          Callie Graphics. Ask her for the ones she just sent me a few months ago. Casey Thrower. Just tell her the numbers you want. Such as:

          Callie,
          I need your expertise once again. I need the same scale as the first order I made for the sub in 1/72 scale. I need the following:
          HULL Numbers 557
          Same as hull draft mark except in the following:
          0
          9
          8
          7
          6
          5

          Lastly the name JOHNSTON in the same size and font as Scorpion. I’ll send pics. Thanks.
