FLEET OPS 144
Current Newsletter of the Southeast Attack Squadron
TASK FORCE 144
The newsletter of the former club, Model Warship Combat inc. Archived here so more can enjoy the great battle stories, tech tips (and more!) and hopefully see what a fun hobby Radio-Controlled Model Warship Combat is.
The original newsletter of the hobby! Scanned images are posted here by special permission of the editor, founding member "DW" Fluegel (many thanks, Fluegel). Much of the technical information in here is dated, there is still a lot of interesting information about the club, the hobby, and of course the nutty humor of guys who play with model ships!
This is the website of our national club. You can find lots of additional information, battles scheduled in other areas of the country, membership information to join the hobby, and more.
This is a club of model enthusiasts who build and compete model race and sail boats. They have approved our club's safety rules and kindly included us on their insurance, so our national club requires all model warship combat club members to also hold NAMBA membership.
An interesting site: Nick (the site owner) is trying to help the global combat model ship hobby by making an informational site with lots of FAQs, forums, info, and links to all the other clubs (grouped by region to help new prospective captains find local contacts).
REGIONAL CLUB WEBSITES
In addition to our southeast group with this website, some of our fellow hobbyists host their own websites with additional information.
Our captains up in the great white north. Very active, very nice group of guys. Rumors abound that they fit skates to their ships for winter use.

The primary source of ships and supplies dedicated to R/C warship combat. For keeping you on the competitive edge in R/C model warship combat. The beginner's best choice.
One of our club's active captains has started this to make it easier for new captains to get started. Will is also the source of the recent advances in 3D printed hulls that are seeing combat!
These guys have been working to develop an easy-assembly entry-level ship via vacuum-formed polystyrene. Their first kit is based on the USS Fletcher and now have several other offerings.
