Re: 20yr Anniversary, The Raising of Bluebird K7

Novie, in many respects those 20 years have gone by in a flash, but when looking at the subsequent 1,000’s of hours spent on returning K7 to her former beauty, all the meetings, bureaucracy, paperwork, planning, operating, that has brought the Project to where it is today, 20 years is also a very lo...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

Polo, Very sad to see your post with the news of John May's passing in the summer. I had dealings with John when he used to send updates on his models that we included in Fast FACTS - specifically Miss America X and Crusader . As others have already noted, they are stunning masterpieces of which we ...

She looks great Rich. Up onto the step very smoothly and she glides across the surface. Very promising.

Top job.

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

Great news that both the BBP and Ruskin are getting around the virtual table for some meaningful dialogue. Well done Jordan and Pete for getting this set up and all the best for a good meeting to both parties.

Here's to a big stride forwards.

Re: Bute / Coniston Back to Back

I note on other Forum that recent visitors to Campbell’s grave have praised the condition it has been kept in. That work goes right back to September 2001. Of course we cannot forget that in 2002 Novie got sponsored to the tune of around £2,500 if my memory serves for his participation in the Conist...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Bill asks in his post of 2.37am(!) on 3rd August, “Isn’t there something going on with CN7 this year?” I don’t know if anything was “going on” with CN7 this year (in any event Covid-19 has put a line through everyone’s diaries this year), but 2020 marks the 60th anniversary of Bluebird CN7 being pub...

Re: Coniston Bye laws/Ruskin

Referring back to Malcolm and Richie’s posts on 30th July, I don’ think the future running of Bluebird should be limited to Coniston and nowhere else. The Coniston Water Byelaw amended under Malcolm’s stewardship to give Bluebird the opportunity for Engineering and Proving Trials that would allow he...
