A great loss to our hobby...
Posted: Admin @ January/06/2021 12:35pm


Just got word that long time scale modeler and event promoter Frank Tiano passed away Monday night. Frank single-handedly help Scale R/C to grow and thrive through the years by promoting it not only with his Top Gun event and writing scale columns for several magazines, but in many ways a lot of people never saw. For example, Frank was always more than helpful if you were putting on an event with 10 people or 100 by offering up some of his Zap product he sold as gifts. Heck, he even help sponsored the Model of the Month here on RCSB! Also, he was always helpful if you needed something at one of his events. Frank was always promoting the hobby and I just don't know to many others out there that did as much of that.

I have no information about the funeral yet but will post as soon as I find out. 
As a tribute to Frank. If you have any pictures with him in it please by all means post them in this tribute thread.

Blue skies and fair winds Frank.

This month’s walk-around download is a special one… TWO walk-arounds of the Fieseler Storch! Walk-around one is from the Swedish Air Force Museum and contains 71 high resolution photos of this subject taken by member Goran Grenander. The second walk-around is of a Storch Air Ambulance taken at LeBourget in Paris. This walk-around contains 70 high resolution images taken by member Mike Smith.


This is an excellent subject to add to your walk-around collection.

January Site News
Posted: Admin @ January/01/2021 8:01am

As we start another lap around our star, I was reflecting on last year and things I wish to improve about my hobby this year. First, the COVID-19 situation ate up a lot of time with my business limiting my free time for my hobby and RCSB. That will be changing this year because while more business is great, it doesn't bring me the enjoyment and fulfillment I get from our great hobby. So you all will definitely be seeing more of me and my projects in 2021.

Also this year, I hope to do a few more video tutorials for the RCSB YouTube channel. If you have never checked it out you can find it at https://www.youtube.com/user/rcsbvideos. If you have a video tutorial on YouTube you would like me to link to there, shoot me a PM or use the contact us form with a link to the video.

Be sure and check out the latest R/C Scale Vendor Guide for this first quarter. It's posted and ready for you to download and use. This is a benefit for Site Supporter Subscribers and can be found by clicking "Site Supporter" on the site menu then "Vendor Resource Guide".

Last but not least, I have increased the upload file size to 200K. This will allow slightly larger images, yet still providing fast page downloads to your browser. If you have not read the Image Resizing Tutorial yet, then I would suggest you do. You can find it at the top of every forum listing or by simply clicking here.

That's it for this month. If you have a minute please post here and let me know your 2021 goals for the hobby. I would love to hear them.

Happy New Year To You All!
Mike
