    While posting on behalf of the Bristol County Radio Control Club's John Nicolaci Memorial Float Fly on Aug 19th I came across this video from their website.  It is an amazing 1/10th Scale PBM Martin Mariner.  This is an amazing model.  I've never seen one like it.


    John Nicolaci 1/10th PBM Martin Mariner, a great tribute to a great builder/ modeler.  This deserves sharing.

    Successfully maidened my Cessna Bobcat (also known by T-50, UC-78, Bamboo Bomber). It was built from plans taken out of a 1964 issue of Radio Control Modeler. 65" span, final weight of 7lbs 14oz (though I hope to pull some lead out of the nose as I refine the CG).

    Michael thanks for getting involved with the forum.  Please pass the word that we are actively improving the website and increasing our outreach to clubs and members through the district officers. We are in a "soft" opening of the new site but will soon re introduce it to the entire district.

    Thanks Michael. I really enjoyed the WWI Biplane full scale construction and flying video/film. How did a film that old remain in such great condition? As you can see, I put the video on the home page for other who don't participate in the forums to view.

    Builders corner is for the craftsman and women who still build from plans with sticks.  I envy and respect your talents.  Please use this space to share tips and discussions.
