Hi All, well it has been some time since I checked in and even longer since the 623 was assigned a mission. Last year there was a huge fire that took out my secret and favorite cove. The fire jumped the bay and also burned the island that provided the awesome backdrop for all my photos and the You-Tube video series. Since then a bulldozer has connected the island to the main location and leveled it making room for who knows how many RVs, loud music and much more I'm sure. Now this spot was 75 mile drive one way and with this location now unavailable, the local RC Plane Club is trying their best to recruit me. Just what I need, higher blood pressure. The RC helicopters were enough for me. Anyway, I have created 2 albums in the Photo Gallery if anyone is interested. The first is just photos of the boat at the dock and the second album Welcome Aboard will take you for a ride during the filming of the the 30 minute You-tube video missions.

Over the next few days I will put together another album with photos from the What If PT Base Diorama which has had a few new additions. I'll also get a link to the video series.

Enjoy

Roy . . . .

Really great to see those images again ! ! ! Sadly the ole' Photobucket Ransom Scam caused us to lose a lot of great images on our forum like these you re-posted. Sad to hear about your photo and video shooting location being lost.

I'm sorry to hear that Roy, I hope you can find another secret base. You've probably already thought of it but Google Maps might help.

Great images, I took one of the dock scene pics and made it grayscale. I bet I could fool a lot of people into thinking it's the full size boat!

So nice seeing the boat again in all her glory. I had been waiting with bated breath to see photos of the base, the ones you sent to me were from a few years ago. Hope all is well.
