Re: Bluebird Runs 2019

I might have gotten things wrong, but to me the committee behind the Ruskin museum thinks it has full control over K7, right? - they think so, because Gina Campbell has donated the wreckage to them - for free. But who paid for finding and recovering the wreckage? - they think so, because at some poi...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

http://www.quicksilver-wsr.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/90-1024x819.jpg Oh, I had seen pictures of that design, but had not recognized it as "the" 4-pointer. To me it was a good idea to switch to the next version. With todays RC technology it would be interresting to try such designs. A lot can b...

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

We accidentally ran into you guys at the pub on Bute and honestly, we had nothing to do with the tent breaking down - but we do remember that evening in good memory. I doubt we got half of the jokes you guys made with (and about) us, but we could clearly tell, you are the good guys. I'd love to have...

Re: Pic of the Day

The "original" piece was cut out from the crashed upper part of the original 1967 sponsons? Very strange. Although it looks like Old English/Cream White (RAL 9001) now, looking at most old pictures it looks much less yellowish. Is there anything else white in those old pictures from which the exact ...

Re: Pic of the Day

I went through the book again this morning and there is one almost full screen picture of the sign where it does look a tiny bit yellowish, but the whole sponson looks yellowish from pollen and all the other stuff that swims on the water surface. Besides that the whole sponson doesn't look freshly p...

Re: Pic of the Day

I just checked pictures in Leo's book and I agree, the original colour looks like 'normal' white in those pictures - not yellowish at all like old english white.

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

No issues raised by our museum partner so that's good. Partners in what sense? Do they describe themselves as such? I, and the many that have now seen it, think that they simply own K7, both pre and post conservation, as per the terms of the Deed of Gift that you signed off on. If they demand its r...
