    I gota know, how long did it take to fill. Btw awesome job guys I love what these guys do I had dreams of stuff like this when i was a kid.

    Ditto to the first comment, my kid dream was to add aircraft and perhaps even ground combat — any thoughts on adding other RC vehicles? I’m thinking you’d need to set up some bunkers if you have aircraft actualy dogfighting. Well done, very cool!

      The only problem I can see with adding ground vehicles is that they’ll, probably, sink…

    Oh wow! This is really big work here. It is so big boat pond. Its a result of lots of human effort. Like this pictures very much.
