Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

I have been reading this thread with interest. Good stuff! I was about13 years old, 60 years ago, and an avid train spotter living in Ashington Northumberland. I have never forgotten the sound of a Deltic approaching at speed on its way South. It was 'Lancon Paddy' . Tremendous machines. Like many ...

Re: Off the Rails - Train Stuff

Re: LOST!! Hep Me!! Hep Me!!

Sam 68. Better if you post under your real name, carries more weight. Anyway the 2019 document is I believe being used to cloud the issue. It simply clarifies ownership transfer that took place in 2006 when Miss Campbell gifted K7 to the Ruskin. I believe it should have been the Campbell heritage tr...

Re: LOST!! Hep Me!! Hep Me!!

One other point is this. I do much work for members of my model boat club on a voluntary basis. Often this involves weeks of work striping out models to rebuild them however I never charge even when I have used my own materials/parts. I could never envisage a situation arising when I tell an owner t...

Re: LOST!! Hep Me!! Hep Me!!

My understanding is that the Ruskin Museum have formally requested in writing the return of their property. They have also placed in the public domain those documents that are relevant, I had sight of those some time ago and hence my previous comments on this forum. Property held by one individual w...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

This shows the major difference in size between K7 and Crusader. Crusader model at 1/8th scale. K7 at 1/6th scale. Crusader was a big boat!

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

An interesting collection; Forum member Rich 1/8th Bluebird with gas turbine engine. Also his large model of Spirit of Australia fitted with a gas turbine. My 1/6th Bluebird, gas turbine powered (now owned by my son Ian) and my Grandsons 1/12th scale Bluebird which was the very first Radio control m...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

1/8th Crusader model tested at speed. As I found in 2003 with a 1/12th scale model, a time when I developed my theory as to why Crusader crashed, I very recently repeated the crash with the 1/8th model. The forward planning shoe on the full size boat was not the problem it was the position/size/shap...

Re: SIGN THE PETITION PLEASE TO LET THE BLUEBIRD RUN

filertron. good to exchange comments in an adult manner thank you. I have it on very good authority, indeed I am entirely satisfied otherwise I would not support it, that the 2013 document was submitted by the BBP for consideration by the Ruskin trustees but was never signed by the trustees. One can...
