I'd be happy with that cheap'un on my shelf. It reminds me, I was in a hobby shop in Munich in 2009 and they had an R/C model of the S.M.S. Emden- that thing was 6 feet long and exquisite! I don't recall how much it cost but it sure wasn't cheap. I wish I had the money whatever it was and I wish I could have safely stowed it in the overhead locker on the aeroplane home. Really, that thing was amazing.

Well, now that this thread's been pirated by things nautical, and especially by that gorgeous live-steam Maerklin Tirpitz, have a look at this video I found.

And mind you, this is something that NO-ONE's EVER going to do with that $35,000 toy ship!
