RcWarships.com has moved locations as of March 1, 2014, and is undergoing a complete rebuild. We will be tearing it apart and putting it all back together over the next couple weeks. So, don’t expect any real solidity to this thing for a bit!
Meanwhile, here’s the opener to the old site, for nostalgia purposes…
In back yards and ponds across the world, gun-armed warships of 60 to 100 years ago still battle each other for dominance of the seas. Have you heard the call of battle?
Do you long to join the fight?? If so . . . .
In Big Gun R/C Warship Combat, captains from around the world build, fight and sink, R/C scale model warships. Ships are armed with CO2-powered CANNONS that blast steel ball bearings into their enemies. Any ship laid down from 1900 – 1946 can play. These real fighting models are built to 1/144 scale, so the average battleship measures between 5 and 6 feet long! Armor thickness and gun calibers vary depending on what the prototype carried. Water pumps are used to control battle damage. As long as your ship can pump the water overboard, all is fine. But when the water rushes in faster than the pump can handle…you have two choices; get your ship home, or sink!
This site is devoted to all Big Gunners internationally, and to the task of spreading the word about our sport. We are happy to include information about your club, either existing or forming. So, pass on what you have, and we’ll see to it that the word gets out.
