Hi all,just to introduce myself I am Brad. I live on San Juan Island in Washington state. I am 70+ years old and have been doing RC planes for over 35 years. I got interested in the RC Jeeps because the Dragon and G.I.Joe Jeeps are the same scale as my latest RC plane. The 1/6 scale all electric Yellow Aircraft P-38 Lightning. When I saw an RC conversion of the Jeep on another forum, I thought it would be the bees knees to have a jeep to tow my P-38 down to the flying field on my property. Same time period, same scale, and same war. Anyway Max-U52 put me on to this forum to check out progress on the jeep here so I felt I needed to join to find out more details on these conversions and hopefully buy or find someone to build one for me as I barely have time to make any progress on the P-38 or anything else for that matter. Still working so very little time for fun.

Welcome, Brad :thumbup: Hope you find enough time for the jeep project to come to fruition, and thus after the downwind leg, it'll be happy landings :thumbup:
