I've noticed that we all have an interest in engineering. The author of gizmology.net made a 1/5 scale Sherman tank, melted coins in a skillet/hot-plate, to obtain an alloy, melted aluminum, performed crude metalcasting, made "chainmaille", etc.

Scaled RC stuff can be cool, I see these old guys at the park with their RC sail boats (about 18=24 inches long) and I think to myself "Self, I'd love an RC "Monitor, or Merimac" with real guns so I could go sink those silly sail boats."


His casting is reckless, zinc gives off some nasty fumes when heated anywhere near melting. He should have been outside or in a highly ventilated area, not the basement.

My neighbour and I are out on our street racing RC cars many nights.

I have a 1/36th scale car (it's about 4 inches long) that goes about 28 mph. His car is much larger 1/16 scale but can exceed 60 mph - that is frigherning to behold.

These are retail kits but are a helluva lot of fun.

I knew a few mechanically-oriented (i.e., auto mechanics) guys who modified their RC cars to attain what seemed blistering speeds. There are videos of such people and their cars.
