    I was at a modeler's show in Detroit some years ago where I saw a model WWII German U-boat about 4' long that shot actual working torpedoes (no warhead though!). Wish I had a camera with me.

    I like the Detroit airport where they have that mind-blowing computerized water fountain in the terminal.

    Is it still there? I wonder.

    Drone plinking eh?

    Now there is a new national sport!

    A reinvention of the old 'air force-navy' rivalry.
    lol

    I was thinking along the lines of running around a lake or on a river and shooting at old car bodys set up along the edge of the river/lake.
