File under a big "LOL", but I realize now that I spelled Angler Management as Angler "Mangement"! Whoops. Not gonna even try getting that decal off, it's really hard to do that without leaving residue and messing up the body. "Mangement" is kinda funny anyway :D

And this is why I don't proof read my own work. 🤣

It's all on hold, it's kayak season.
What sort of boat do you have?

My future projects are for the long Iowa winter. One is Mini Z racing. Not going crazy just getting a couple. But I’m waiting for the hobby shop to build a carpet race track. Then I’m getting a new buggy just for carpet.

I don't have a RC boat but I want a large scale gas boat.
This time of year, I'm usually fishing more than anything.
The way it looks outside right now, I may need a boat to get to the grocery store.

I have a kayak and I love to just go out and relax. Everything else is more work than I’m willing to put into it.

How are these bodies holding up? I just purchased a 1/6 New Bright Raptor. Building a scale truck out of it all the way down to XD wheels.
They are very tough but only if you take the time to do a few things. Most of these toy bodies are a styrene blend and respond better to epoxys and glue than lexan.
Epoxy all the windows into the shell on the inside.
Back up the inside of the body where you drill your mounting holes with some sheet plastic you can chop off almost any junk childs toy. I like to use the plastic panels you find in cars the best. Grab some tin snips and hit the junkyard. These panels are not styrene and can't be successfully bonded in most cases so I drill and bolt these in place.
If your not going to bash your build you probably don't need to go to all that trouble but I would take the time to make the body very solid around the mounts.
I won't even mention the scars you have to live with after a few crashes lol. I ripped the wing off the beetle again yesterday gotta fix it today.
Here's some pics of what I did to the inside of the body to brace it up better after a bad wreck.
