Southeast Attack Squadron (SAS)
a Radio-Controlled Model Warship Combat Club
| One aspect of our hobby is that there are no commercial sources for completely pre-built ships "ready-out-of-the-box" like there are for certain other R/C hobbies. Of course, this leads to one of the more pleasurable aspects of the hobby, the variety and uniqueness of the different ships built by different captains. For most of our captains, building the ships is as much fun as battling them (and why we always seem to be building more ships even after we already have one... or two... or three... or... (I'll shut up now). Fortunately there are now a couple good sources dedicated to supplying quality ship kits (or just parts) specifically for our hobby:|
|SHIPS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE|
| Many of our members did not start with the skills and knowledge neccessary to build all the systems in our ships. Many of us got our start by purchasing a used ship (either whole or partialy-built) from another member and learned from what we saw in that ship (This Webamster notes his first TWO ships were used ships he just replaced the motors, wiring, and radios in!) Toward that end, SAS tries to help captains in our region and make getting started easy by listing ships that captains have to sell (see below). SAS makes no claims or services regarding the sale of these ships. Anyone interested in a ship below MUST contact the captain selling the ship and work out all arrangements.|
FOR SALE: DKM Bismark
One of our members has a very nice DKM Bismark he bought from another captain but then decided to build a cruiser before he finished outfitting this Bismark. It is completely built and was battled by the original captain, but some of the internals were removed so it will need a few items to be battle-ready again. The captain reports that all it should need is a bottle, solenoids, barrels, and batteries. He is asking $450. It is too big for him to ship but would bring it to a SAS battle to sell (or could likely deliver it if not too far - southeast region).
Rick Whitesell (Captain of the USS Jamaica) has amassed quite a collection over his years in our hobby, but has decided to part with some of the ships he no longer uses and/or does not have time to finish construction on (some are simply too similar to other ships he already has). Please note that none of the items for sale below include BB cannons even if shown in the picture. There is also no mailing cost if you can pick up the ship at an event he is attending (or meet him in the Kansas City area). If you are interested in any of the ships or "extra's" below then you can contact Rick at: firstname.lastname@example.org
