Holy s...! Wow!

Great job! Those guns might not be 18.1 inch diameter, but they just might be 18.1 inches long.

Local newspaper coming down for a photo layout and article?

Look wonderful, hope he doesn't leave it outside to rot. Would be cool making that thing a floating radio control ship and special effects on the waters.

Hi rising son
Its a 1275psi project, otherwise known on these forums as herbiesan (the little ship that could)
Entirely scratch built
12 foot long. radio controlled, and definitely garaged!

That is incredible!

When you say "scratch built" does that mean you fabricated the pieces yourself?

Just about the coolest total waste of time that I have ever seen. Beautiful job. What will you do with it. Donate it to a museum or just keep it in the living room?

You didn't need OT. You couldn't be more on topic! When does it go on tour so we can all get a look?

A few questions please 1275psi

- How long did she take to build?
- What was she made from?
- How much does she weigh?
- How do you transport her around?
- How much do you reckon she cost you in raw materials?
- I hope you have this work of art insured!!

She is just amazing!!

Sadly, it will only take 10 destroyed drones to sink this beautiful ship. More AA, always more AA...
