    That spit sounds bad ass!

    Yeah, Firehose flys and has a bunch of planes, one being a fully functional B-17. It's a kick to hear him talk about it.

    Tidget makes models for people, too, i believe. You'll need to talk to him but I think I've heard him mentioning it a bunch of times.

    Tidgit does static-models with full wartime historical accuracy,including gauge paint, appropriate armnament,flight markings,etc. He's often hired out by collectors and what not for this.

    This is all correct, FireHose is the man. I am still a noob but plan one day to be flying rc. At the moment just into 1/8 gas buggy and 1/10 Drift electric. Also once giving the time planing to complete my large scale King tiger which Tigit has helped greatly on paint schemes and such.

    Stop bragging about it and show us vids and pics already jeez




    For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed,
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still.

    I heard someone mention RC Airplanes and all of a sudden they had my full and complete attention.LOL
    Yes. I fly RC airplanes. No jets. I prefer Props. I've been doing it since I was a young teenager and let me tell you that was a long long long time ago.LOL
    Over the years I got better and I moved up. What started out as a part time hobby....has become a full time passion.LOL
    I currently own and fly a large scale B17 with a wingspan of approx. 6.5 feet. I can fly it alone or I can have a friend assist me in flying it.
    I also own a large scale WWI Albatross with a wing span of 6 feet. Currently she's being rebuilt because it was attacked by a hawk while flying too close to the trees. Hey...it happens. I posted a video of the B17 on the forums. I'll try to find it and post it again or if someone finds it before me they can post it.
