Ted:

You have given away my plans, maybe Roy won't see this post. Besides, when my Wife hits the lottery this weekend, I am going to buy that 623 boat, and keep Stan busy for a long time, hey wait, I am already keeping him busy, Ride on Toy, PT-66, and PT-109 model.

I just can't help myself Ted. That is a fire ax that is removable from the mount. Everything on the boat is movable. Half the fun is building but the other half is the photography. So all the photos don't look the same, I can reposition most of the stuff and move the guns so the photos all don't look the same. Even that 40mm clip in the gun and in the loaders hands can be replaced with a different type of round from the rack with a different colored tips. The radar mast can also be lowered down onto the roof of the day room even with the attached motor that drives the unit. It never ends and this is why I have a hard time getting to sleep at night.

PS: The DVD will be done by next week.

Oh yea, one other thing. Those two rocket launchers can be moved out and up into their firing positions. They are made of brass and just happen to be able to hold and fire 16 bottle rockets in groups of 4 or all 16 at the same time by RC. Now that I haven't tested that yet for fear of messing up the paint or having a CBP Blackhawk show up over head with laser pointers on me and the 623.
