Very impressive, is it R/C? Now all you need are some vehicles to load it up with. Al

Yes it is built to be RC (i.e. stuffing boxes, ballast chambers, balanced, water tight) but I have not installed the running equipment.

Not much of a collector, more of a builder. My late wife restricted me to x amount of shelf space, so I started ebaying off the old after a new model was added, and over the years just went to building and then ebaying so as to keep a tidy house (Spartan background in my childhood).

May in the future begin to build up a collection again (at one time I had over well over 100 planes, tanks, ships) but for now I just like to build them, and the other guys can collect them.
