HI Pete well my uncle searved in the R/N on a small carrier in the war fixin earo engines on swordfish I think but he would not talk about it much as I heard he had some bad times on that ship what with seasickness an the war an my dad was in the RAF at Dunkirk again they dint want to talk so no I wish I did though but the reason I love building R/C ships is that the models really challenge me on the modelin front as there is so much you can make work on them an over the last 30 odd yrs of building them ive learned a lot how to build from scratch an in some cases how not to build but that's the learning process isn't it I used to try an fly R/C planes but kept comin home with kilndin as I crashed a lot so I thought well with ships everything happens slower so got time to recover unless I run into an over other models but not my fault on that but I think these warships look very majestic an powerfull when they sail on the pond an the public love them to as they always want to see inside an I put them in model shows to show the model off an a lot of people ask me where they can buy one but they cant as the models have to be built by people like me anyway thanks for lookin in an your questionChris, do you have a naval background?
HI Jack glad you like tiger an if your dads uncle served on tiger well I see why your intrest is increased 10 fold as you have a link with the ship was tiger just a battle crusier when the gent servered on her or like im building the helicopter convert ?Looking great Chris, still fascinates me how you even start something like this. My interest has just increased 10 fold, as when I showed this to my Dad, he informed me that his Uncle had only served on two ships while he was in the Navy, HMS Hermes (Aircraft Carrier), and the other was the Tiger!!
