[News] R/C U.S.S. Macon

R/C flying model of the U.S.S. Macon airship

U.S.S. Macon designed and built by Jack Clemens

I just found out about this incredible 1/40th scale R/C flying model of the U.S.S. Macon on the Airships.net blog. The airship, designed and built by Jack Clemens, is 20′ long and 3′ in diameter. It’s a BIG model airship and only fit in his two car garage diagonally. And it flies!

This really gives me a little more motivation to stop procrastinating and find more time to work on my own model airship. :)
