I have just seen this and thought, yes that would look cool if i could build a landing strip into our RC Playground and have same scale planes!
Oh dear i need to buy a field!!!!!!!!!!

Apologies for my crap driving in most vids. Just because i holding my camera in one hand and trying to hold and drive the vehicles with same hand holding the tx. Can be tricky haha!
More to build, but certainly moving on and really looking good

Still taking shape, but it does take a while.
Added some lights and also making some small diorama sets for various vehicles. The added bonus with these is i can also bring them out and place them in the playground to add to the RC playground details.

Also starting to discuss changing some scrap land into a small RC playground away from the house, which i can maybe open up to other local users to help build, maintain and have somewhere cool to use the vehicles.
I took alot of inspiration from our recent holiday and my wife thinks it would be a great idea to build our own model village somewhere with the aim to be able to use it for RC model enthusiasts.
