Unbelievable RC

What, do you think all I do is sit behind the computer all day? Well ok, I work in software design, so yeah, that's pretty much true, by day. But when the evenings & weekends come (yesss!), I sometimes manage to tear myself away from the rest of real life and work some alchemy in the workshop.

Below are what projects I've managed to come up with so far that actually look like vehicles, including those that are still on the bench awaiting completion. I try to share all of the gory details so that others can benefit from my mistakes and the occasional good idea. If you have any questions or comments, please post them on the forums so you can get feedback from not just me, but the rest of the great RC community out there!
