Nostalgic Early Modeling Days S. Shore MA - BOATS

Post by Neons »

Some of us were diverse in modeling. They were in other vehicles also. Show yours. Early in the 80's there was a model boat club established in Fall River. The name of Fall River Model Boat Club. . We met in a room in BCC College. We were permitted to sail boats and use only electrics in the BCC pond. Nice place. It lasted about 5 years when indifference's broke it up. Shame as there was a lot of activity. The main pond was in the S Wattupa boat ramp. If the wind was bad it shifted to the Cook Pond ramp. There also was a pond at Seekonk trucking depot on Rt.6. There were times we used the Reed Rd. Lake Nochochoke along the street. It is closed now. This group shot is May,1985 at Cook Pond.

Remember. Anywhere in the BCRCC Forum you can ZOOM in a picture with a couple fast clicks.

Here is a compilation of many of the boats that ran in the mid 1980's era. Do any of you guys have some boats to show or tanks cars trucks, or anything. Open up a New post and let us see them.
