Dahil sa wala na naman akong magawa dito sa opis kanina, at dahil na rin nagsasawa na ako sa kaka-download ng mga, (suso at pekpek), penekula eh naisipan ko munang mag ikot ikot sa internet.
Aba namangha na naman si Ah’Kong dito sa nakita naming scale model ng isang military aircraft. At hindi lang siya basta scale model kundi RC siya at hindi lang yun, hindi siya prop engine kundi jet engine.
At tingnan ninyo kung gaano kalaki…..
Ang matindi dito hindi siya yung nabibili sa kung saang Hobby Shop, itong scale model na ito eh gawa from scratch….kungbaga lahat ng pyesa eh custom made.
Ang may kagagawan ng kalokohan na ito ay si Mike Shelby….(ang tiyaga mo teng!!!!)
Ooopsss kailangan ng change oil ‘to…..pengeng 2T….(tangna ano yan Honda Wave???? LOLs)
Si Mike Shelby sa kanyang workshop……
Heto pa ang isa palang matindi…..ang nagastos ni Mike Shelby sa paggawa ng model na ito eh timataginting na US$ 12,000.00. Pootah makakabili na ako ng walong Hondang motorsiklo nun ah….kung sa US$ 1.00 = PHP 40 eh umaabot ng PHP 480,000 petot.
Teka tingnan ninyo ang maiksing article nito….
If a sodden rice paddy feels soft and forgiving underfoot, it is not a merciful place to set down an airplane at 200 mph. And thats only one of Mike Selbys reasons to look nervous as he watches his A-10 Warthog—a 10-foot-wide, 65-pound, hand-built model—begin its maiden takeoff roll down a rough asphalt runway near Bangkok, Thailand. Selby, who spent over $12,000 and the better part of a year fabricating and building this radio-controlled jet, stands runwayside with his thumbs hooked into the belt loops of his jeans, trying to look relaxed as he draws on a Cuban cigar.
Scale-model jets are the apogee of radio-controlled model aeronautics: The technical challenge of building jet power in miniature is far beyond the abilities of the average hobbyist. Handcrafted by an elite cadre of backyard aviators, these models can fly at speeds of up to 300 mph, and at Selby’s level of competition, they’re built to look and perform exactly like their real-life counterparts
But Selby’s greatest passion is building hyper-realistic scale-model planes. “Building and tinkering is so far from what I do work-wise, it takes my mind off it,” he says. “Also, it’s part of my attempting not to grow up.” It is a pursuit that has become increasingly sophisticated over the past five years. For those like Selby, with plenty of resources, ambition and technical savvy, high-tech composite materials and miniaturized controls have enabled higher strength-to-weight ratios, and telemetry and digital engine-management systems have given RC pilots more power and control. Model kits are more realistic and reliable than ever before, and super-modelers like Selby, who build their own from scratch, are taking on larger, more ambitious projects.
Selby’s model will be the first A-10 to fly in competition, and probably the largest jet ever to fly at Top Gun. About 85 percent of Top Gun competitors build from kits, but Selby designed and built nearly everything on Johnson’s A-10 from scratch in his 1,500-square-foot workshop, just off the parking deck of his 30-story apartment building. The shop is a tech geek’s dream, outfitted with a laser-cutting machine, computer numerical control mill and lathe, 3-D laser scanner, and plastic vacuum former.
Ang tindi nito….akala mo totoo….
Gagawa din ako ng ganyan…..isang malaking malaking boka-boka…oh di ba…wala pang gastos…kahit kumang dyaryo na pinagtagpi-tagpi pwede na tapos lalagyan ko ng isang katerbang granada at ihuhulog ko dun sa nakatira sa palasyo….LOLs
