Dust off your boats and start prepping for these upcoming, awesome RC scale boating events!
created a series of themed events. Bring your themed RC scale boats,
and let’s have some fun! For more information see our Facebook page or
contact Jeff Sparksworthy firstname.lastname@example.org.
July 20, 2019 – “Tug-O-War”
Bring your tugs. We’ll measure their pulling power against a scale and have tugs pull each other across sight lines. We will also have a weighted barge pull.
October 26, 2019 – “A Gray Day”
Bring your battleships, submarines (even though they’re black), flat tops, cruisers, mine sweepers, tin cans, landing craft, and cargo ships for a set of scale runs like a point to point speed burst races for destroyers, a convoy, and a “round the pond” task force cruise. No sneak attacks allowed!
December 7, 2019 – “Pearl Harbor Remembrance Model Boat Run / Fleet Gathering”
A run of 1:96 scale ships & boats at Santee Lakes. Argonauts with 1/96 scale ships are invited to run with the Task Force 96 group.
December 14, 2019 – “2019 Model Boat Parade of Lights”
A magical evening run involving tiny boats and lots of little, beautiful lights.
We’ve been given a fantastic indoor space, right in front of the entrance to the Model Railroad Museum in Balboa Park. We will have access to the space for setting up, starting on Friday at 4:00 PM, and at 8:00 AM on Saturday, 9:00 AM on Sunday. We have parking, secure storage, power and restrooms, with a cafe just up the stairs above us. This will be a high-traffic area during the event, but with a perfectly-controllable, roped-in area along the busy thoroughfare. WE NEED BOATS AND SHIPS TO DISPLAY! You need not commit to the full weekend, or even a full day, but we need as many people and boats/submarines and ships as possible.
See photos below for an unloading map and a look at the space.
For sale is a fiberglass tugboat kit called the “Carol Moran.” Scale is 1/48.
You can check details on the Scale Shipyard website such as original costs of this kit. Lee Upshaw makes some of the best hulls on the market. Most orders from Lee take time for him to create. This is a real gem that’s ready to ship.
