Looking great indeed and yesterday Richie, we fitted your repair patches into place where her original Bluebird emblems were cut out for safekeeping. Both patches and the attendant doublers fit perfectly, top job! :D

K7 has a lovely shaped rear ! latest POTD she is looking great and not a bit of dead metal to be seen.....Helpless lotto fools surely must have been able to see that although damaged, on the whole K7 was restorable, and worth it saying she and Donald touched the hearts of many all over the globe.. hey ho as they say ;)

Agreed Richie - she's a compliment to the Norris Brothers' design and to Gina Campbell and the whole BBP Team for having the vision, dedication and determination to bring her back to life.

The most successful WWSR craft of all time and highly likely to remain so....

New pic up- apologies for the delay, but we've been busy of late. While I think of it as well, public thanks to our team mate Checkie Rob for the fab new workshop monitor, which is visible in the new POTD- it's already made perusing our reference materials a lot easier. 8-)

...but without a big crack painted on it, and I don't think Gus Grissom could get out of that little hole in the side, no matter if it was opened by accident or not! :lol: ;)

Aye but they both spent a lot of time underwater!-and my respect for Bill would definitely soar if he dived on Liberty7!-she was recovered from 15000 feet-bit of tri-mix needed there then :D

Stick a plumber's poo-plunger on the side and you're there.
