Welcome to Strike Models!
Welcome to Strike Models! In case you’ve never heard of this hobby before, here’s a quick introduction. People build RC 1:144 models of ships from WWI and WWII, arm them with BBs and ball bearings, then go out for battles on a pond. The ships shoot each other, and they actually do sink but then are easily repaired and battling again in an hour. The hobby is popular in the US, Canada, and Australia, but currently limited in some other areas due to complex gun laws. We do sell and ship all over the world though, since some people like to just build their model and not partake in the shooting it up fun. People usually build battleships, battlecruisers, and cruisers. There are some destroyers built and a few subs, but they are more difficult to build because of their smaller size in this scale. We provide fiberglass hulls, ship kits, BB cannons, radios, and everything else you need for 1:144 scale models. We support Fast Gun, Treaty, and Big Gun styles of RC model warship combat.
We will be battling in the Seattle area Sunday, May 19th. Contact us for details! In the San Francisco area? Visit Maker Faire May 18th and 19th for multiple live battles over the weekend.
We have two types of variable regulators in stock now: a 16g cartridge version and an aluminum one for refillable tanks. We are stocked in 2.8 and 7 oz CO2 tanks.
We are getting more of the full kits back into production. Most of them are back now.
The US C3 cargo hull is available now in the hulls section of the website.
Hardware kits, props, and fast gun cannon sets are available for sale now.
