Pin badges, these are 28mm enamel badges, they're heavy! Gold coloured edge and a shiny epoxy protective coating make these badges completely water proof too! But don't go falling Into the pond to find out! Something to add to your t-shirt or cap. Don't have a cap? Why not order one of them too!
Me too! Never mind the cost, imagine the space you need to build and store the beast! Those guys all seem to live in mansions or in their own factories😲 Yeah, you posted Pixhawk already, A380 autopilot to Jo'berg folks!? The stabiliser RX will do me, don't see much point in flying outta sight, never mind all the German ATC regs 😡 OK for Amazon & Co I suppose.
Go easy with the solvent! In case it attacks the plastic. What type paint did you use? I might try polishing it off first. Overspray is not normally so thick or so firmly 'attached' as where you actually wanted the paint😉
I know people build real jets I look at them and DROOOOOOOOOL. However at my age and short pockets looking is about all I can afford. When it comes to stabilising I have a pixhawk in my quadcopter and that is an amazing beast. It is capable of autonomous flight following GPS waypoints then auto landing.
Heartily agree Delboy, (How's business? Yes I do remember the series😉) Aha! Popeye (less pipe?)! Are you going to do Olive Oyl as well to keep him company ? I'm still looking for suitable 1/12 (ca 1/16 at a push) crew for my Sea Scout. Doug 😎
Hi Haverlock, there are even nuts over here who have made 1/6 Eurofighters, F104 Starfighter (Widow Maker😲) and F18s, with sometimes home-made jet turbines!! Massive beasts and massive costs! They crop up on DMAX Model Builder series from time to time. Cheers, Doug 😎

I can only speak for myself but I hate to see model boats tooling about with nobody on the bridge, like the Marie Celeste or a Philippine super tanker. So, i was very pleased to find this able bodied seaman that I can reproduce on my 3D printer. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2757066
Hi Martin, The RX with flight stabiliser is for my Catalina flying boat!! It just helps to keep things under control on windy days 😊 Automatically adjusts to wind gusts. A tip I got from PMDevlin here on the site👍, who has the same Catalina model and got me hooked😊 First pic is Paul's, second pic mine! BTW: they have two brushless OUT-RUNNERS!! The stabiliser might help a boat / ship that is sensitive to side winds I suppose!? The auto aileron control wouldn't be a lotta use tho! Unless of course adjustable stabiliser fins are fitted, like on modern cruise ships😁 The pissibolities are endless these days 😉 More power to your budgets folks, cheers, Doug 😎
