Azipod Springers
« on: January 27, 2010, 01:24:23 pm »

Hi everybody, I'm quite new here, but i've been a regular on RCG for some time now... :-)

These are my two springers (for now), both powered by azipods... they turn on a dime :-))

It should be a TomCat springer...
Yes, I carved a blue foam block and covered it in fiberglass... then a LOT of sanding... and painting (I used to do model aircraft, so colors were available)
