Fishing/boating, and a bit of boxing occasionally, don't get much time for it these days

I'm about to sell all my old fishing gear, no carp stuff but some decent coarse gear and a couple of vintage fly rods. I'd love to get back into fishing but what with the shooting, bushcraft, engines, kids, wife and business to run I just haven't got the time Sad

Well due to my back getting worse I'm now thinking that showing engines is going to get unmanagable so I've been looking around for a while for something to do. I though oh a train layout but I don't know the first thing about trains, LOL I've a very large collection of mainly die cast buses and a few trucks but I haven't the space for anymore so that's out. I enjoy caravanning and messing about with my van but they could go at the same time as I stop messing with engines. So looking around you tube I was fasinated to see some videos and hmmm I'd like to do that, I used to do it in my teans that was mainly racing but now I want to try something different. I'm thinking of going into rc trucks and construction equipment. I can sit at a table to build/repair them then sit when out operating them. Here's a video and there's plenty more to see, check out the German rc stuff spot on. The only thing that's stopping me is the price, for a basic set up it's about a grand but maybe shopping around I could chop a few hundred off the price but some of the good construction equpment is selling for £5k. My wife has seen some of the cheaper diggers etc and thought the ones selling for around the £150-£200 wasn't to bad so might start there LOL. The lights etc are all added later, the controller price is £225 you can even buy things like curtains to hang in the cab lol. There's a couple of links to give you an idea of prices but most times the radio gear is on top of the kit price and batteries are also needed.

Stu,

I saw these on ebay, they might be a good starting point for you if your going into diggers and that. There near you as well so wont cost a lot for collection.

Paul I like the split in this section, I was wondering if something could be done to seperate topics as they would all end up in one big mess.

Nice one.
