    I’m starting this thread to post some of the cool stuff we do around here that doesn’t get shot up.

    This weekend, in addition to the Tirpitz we just sold, we are building a wind tunnel for the science fair. Orion’s project “How Birds Fly” is going be cool. We needed 10,000 straws to create the laminar flow section of the tunnel... more to come

    Also we just scored a deal to build some hulls as a platform for autonomous bird chasing boats for a fish farm in Israel. Looking forward to seeing these in action.

    I bought the feathers on eBay. We have a pair of Rouen ducks as pets. Lucky and Reilly. The kids wouldn’t let me pluck them in the name of science. Lol.

    Worked until 5am... then back up at it 10am catching up on orders pushed back by the science fair projects. Maybe I’m just really whipped mentally, but does anyone else see a really old scaredy-cat Batman face?

    I got 4 Sailboat Molds in a trade deal from the estate of an old rc Sailboat racer. This one is a US1M. Not very nice finish but now I can see where it needs fixing.

    No, but with the same wingspan as the length a 1/144 Brooklyn, would be a formidable Kamikaze.

    Modelshipsahoy.com is helping fight world hunger...

    These two boats are heading to Israel. They are being equipped with sensors and computer controls as autonomous bird chasers for a fish farm. Apparently the Pelicans and Cormorants are eating a lot of this dudes fish.
