Those look just great, and I think my favorite is the patrol boat. I laughed pretty hard when the boat took off and that little guy fell on his face in the water. 8)

And just so you know, in English, when you're looking at something the word is spelled see, but when you're talking about a large body of water the word is spelled sea. And that was a very enjoyable evening by the sea. :thumbup:

Good evening Max,

Thanks you :thumbup: ...jes, it was not planned that the man fell down...but it was all right 8)

oha.....jes, sometimes my "shoolenglish" is a bitt rusty.....wehn in the days back in shool somebody tells me, "you need you english later for an RC Tankforum", ...maybe i pay a bit more attention on that....but at this time i start playing with the littel Tanks, ROCO Minnitanks, they are in 1:87......and i had a lot :angel:

Thanks for advise and i try to fix it :thumbup:

For me it's the little unexpected things, like the guy falling over, that make a video truly enjoyable. I even re-wound to watch that part again. And that patrol boat is first class. I've never even thought about boats before, but now I might have to look into them.

And your English is way better than my German, and you do just fine. I don't often say anything but sometimes there's a communication gap and if we fill that gap we all come out ahead. And I also know that English is the hardest language to learn if it's not your native tongue, so anyone that grew up speaking German and now speaks English as well as you do gets a doff of the cap from me. 8)

Do you by any chance have video of the LCT in action? If I ever do explore boats I think that's where I'll start. 8)

Hey,

thank you for the words :thumbup:
Jes, the patrol boat is fine. I have it, cause it fits perfect to my viatnam era vehicels and vietnam diorama at Wächtersbach. Im not that boot fan, but its nice to play together with tanks and boots.

At the momnet i have no action video.....only 2 you can see it a bit:

Wow, Andy, that is very, very cool. But tell the guy that loaded the jeep, "You're Fired!" :haha:

I can't wait to see the next video. Tell me, will a Pershing fit in the LCT, or is it too wide?

Thanks for the Unterhaltung, Andy! ...and allowing us the chance to spend the day with some of your wonderful models. The 'Seehund' is a really smooth performer, and most unusual :D

Looks like the ideal place to spend a day out; one where the feared Covid bug is likely to be absent. :thumbup: I love the bulldozer, and the 'track-spin'. It's hard enough reversing with a trailer or caravan on the back of a (real) car; but for reversing a model by RC on slipping sand, you need nerves of steel :D :thumbup:
Thanks for posting the videos. It's another way for us to flee from lockdown :wave:
