Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Looks like a lot of arse covering coming from the LDNPA, shifting the blame for any delays on proving trials squarely at other parties. But then, that is just my own view of it and that may be a misinterpretation on my own part. There is also a liberal amount of mentioning "apply for an exemption to...

Re: Pic of the Day

It is what it is and for now I will live with it whilst I determine a solution. It may be in how the feed is called to the main webpage (adobe flash/shockwave? Java/javascript?). I have all flash, shockwave and java/javascript blocked from loading on all my laptops and pc's as it can be insecure and...

Re: Pic of the Day

Aah well, 5 laptops, running MacOS (10.13 or 10.14) and 3 pc's with win7 pro or ultimate and the only device that shows the page correctly is an iPad.

Good to know it is only the laptops and PC's misbehaving and not the BBP website.

Looking forward to the next update ;)

Re: Pic of the Day

It's funny, I just hijacked my Fiancee's laptop and looked on that. Same thing. A simple link. (Firefox and four other browsers)

Tried her iPad and it comes up fine on/in/with Safari.

Re: Pic of the Day

Whilst I understand the need to appeal to a wider audience and, indeed, applaud the adoption of such a platform, I only get a plain link entitled "Tweets by bluebirdk7" on the homepage.

Same thing for me, no matter which browser I try. May just be the security add-ons I run.....

Drop me a PM with a paypal addy, funds will be sent across thursday morning ;) (when wages are paid in)

That also reminds me I need to sort out a bit more Merch' from the BBP shop!

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

How about an inverted Aicraft-style wing at the front that is adjustable, It may help to keep the nose down a tad?

To what extent it will work, I do not know....

Re: Isle of Bute

i had wondered if that may have been the case regarding the sponsons. thanks for taking time to answer the question.

in regards to the cockpit water ingress, I take it, at present, there is no way to stop that occuring?

Re: Isle of Bute

I was wondering what may have been the reason for the ease in which K7 was able to get up on the plane so easily when previously she showed reluctance to get on the plane. I was also intriqued as to where the water came from (where the ingress point is/was), that we see being baled out of the cockpi...

Re: The One Show

After watching the one show all I can say is WOW!!! K7 literally jumped up onto her planing shoes and fairly flew along the lake. Bill and everyone else on the team, a MASSIVE well done! All of the hard work and years of passion, not to mention your bloody mindedness never to be beaten, really show ...
