Firing Battleship at Wings & Wheels (UltraHD/4K) - Posted: 21 days ago by Dom of Essential RC

Never seen an RC Battleship that actually simulates firing of its weapons. This was great to watch. Complimented by a submarine crash diving and surfacing!

This brings back memories to when I was a 7 year old in 1959. During the family holiday in Scarborough we visited Peas Holme Park and there was some action on the boating lake.

It appeared to be an enactment of the Battle of the Atlantic with some very large models of ships of the era shooting it out.

I recall that some of boats these sank and I have a vivid memory of a merchant vessel being shelled with flares being set off on the deck to simulate a direct hit.

Does anyone have details, ie did the ships have a person on board or where they radio controlled and I also noted some wires above the lake which dive bombers ran along with imitation bombs

Does this event still take place as I know that at one time persons wanted to stop it due to Germany now being one of our NATO allies.

Hi Boaty, Apparently so! 😊
There was some discussion about this here a little while ago
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peasholm_Park
"Events
Naval Warfare event

The Naval Warfare event, Battle of Peasholm,[9] has been played out for half an hour three times a week during the summer season for over 80 years. The model boats used are mostly man powered earning the fleet the title of "The smallest manned navy in the world". All the boats were man powered, until 1929, when electricity was introduced, and now only the larger boats need to be steered by council employees. In the early days, the models were First World War battleships and a U-boat. Then, after the Second World War, the fleet was replaced with new vessels and the battle that was recreated was the Battle of the River Plate."
