Swamp boat trailer

When does the enthusiasm for scale items stop? Never ever – if you can imagine it – you can build it! The swamp boat available at HobbyKing is a nice and affordable scale item than can be easily transferred to a stunning piece of scale art. However, how do you get it to shore? Carry around in your backpack? Of course not! This must be achieved in style in of course scale!

Vintage Gasoline Pump

Once you dive in to the world of scale RC, it is not all about the ride you build and show of at a G6, various Scale Challenges or Superscale events. With aftermarket parts and scale items that are readily available scale RC enthusiast can build and outfit complete scale garages or other buildings to recreate that perfect scale scenario. However, sometimes you see scale items at various events that are scratchbuild or 3D printed and perfectly resemble the original item.

In order to outfit the scale garage that Ollyman already built, he was looking for some vintage scale gas pumps but realized quickly that suitable parts are not available for purchasing.  “Well, if it is not available, I will 3D print it” and with some searching on the Internet he found some suitable files that resulted in a nice scale item…

Looks good and suits the overall look of the garage, but something is missing…..

Picking the right screwdrivers

When I got back into this hobby about a good year ago, I invested into what I thought were some good screwdrivers. Good tools can make life a lot easier and makes maintenance fun instead of a frustration. Little did I know that about a year later I would realise that my tools were definitely not that great and ended up being a frustration. So I went out to find something better and wanted to share my findings with you, hoping you will not make the same mistake.
