Will this ship (when completed) be operated by remote control? My friend would build them and operate them with a 'for sale' sign attached. He was successful.

Thank you D200DX, this one has been completed but no, all my models are just static display. I thought about doing a remote control one before but I would rather build a remote control airplane which I have a good det of pland for a PBY Catalina or helicopter, mount a camera on it and use it like a drone :)

That would be pretty cool Though ship could fight wars just like Robot Wars but with ships against ships all on water.

Corey,...it's going to come to that, look at the new littoral combat ship manned by less than 50 sailors that can be re-arranged for different combat scenario, and in the near future, most of your shipborne planes will be unmanned drones, cheaper to operate and don't have to spend millions to train the pilots and also less stress :)

Thank you Georgi, that mean that were both big kids at hearth, model shipbuilding is a good hobby and it keep's our mind occupied, so we both should live old and happy :)
