Re: Pic of the Day

That, "my dear watson" is a very truthful phrase! I saw my first "Apirition" some years ago returning home with my father and one of his good lady friends, late at night having been to "band practice" (I'm a musician, but wasn't playing that night though as I only started proper a couple of years la...

Re: Pic of the Day

Well, DMC was known to like a practical joke was he not?

Maybe his "Spirit" enjoying a little fun?

Re: Bluebird Models

Not yet Mike, though it might be a longer build than I initially thought!! Worry not, rivet detail is easy to add with a tiny spot of PVA applied off the tip of a tiny needle or pin. Superglue even works providing it is thick and you are careful.......... A model builder never forgets or regrets, o...

Re: SS Nomadic (& other historic vessels)

This is where it all gets a bit cloudy, especially after the conflicting theories, the emotions involved et al Heck, I grew up being told of titanic and her story, have watched the films, the Documentaries and read some of the books on it as it interested me. Personally, whilst she IS a huge beast b...

Re: SS Nomadic (& other historic vessels)

I must admit, that "Bananna peel theory" does put it into the easiest to understand terms while still being, for the most part, accurate.

Re: SS Nomadic (& other historic vessels)

"Collapsing under her own weight"

That seems to be a recurring phrase.....Same was said about the Cutty Sark and look what theyhave done to her. Lets hope they do not do to Victory, as they did to the Cutty Sark. What a crying shame that would truly be!

Re: joke of the day

In a crowded city at a busy bus stop, a woman who was waiting for a bus was wearing a tight leather skirt. As the bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first step of the bus. Slightly embarrassed and ...

Re: SS Nomadic (& other historic vessels)

Don't get me started on paintings / art.. I have a hard enough time justifying the £2000 a time, to purchase and restore a 40 year old Raleigh Chopper kids bike that BITD was dumped on the floor like it didn't matter. £45m for a piece of "art" that has little to no significance to British culture is...
