Pic of the Day

Hi Ernie,
I remember a while back the old girl was 3D scanned, unfortunately at the time she didn’t have a completed body.

Re: Where can Bluebird be seen

Re: Isle of Bute

Smashing idea Bill, I would have loved to have brought my grandson along this year, alas he is only 4 & his attention span is somewhat lacking. With a planned itinerary I could make it work & I could bring some of the family along. My Mrs says I’m a geek, I can’t disagree, but once she’s see...
