Re: Bluebird Project You Tube Channel & Vimeo

I only ever took Mike out on the control boat once and I'd never seen the footage he shot until just now when I saw it all with fresh eyes. It's amazing! I was in the thick of it at the time but viewed it as pure work - we were on a mission. We've fired a final request at the museum trustees to join...

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

Should we warn anyone Bill, Greenpeace, coast guard etc?
Used to dive for Greenpeace. They're all lunatics - in a nice way. Last trip was on Esperanza in 2005, I think. Grabbing coral of the Isle of Mingulay. Happy days.

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

I hope that those who study the subject of speed history learn from this story and we will see it applied to a subject close to enthusiasts hearts. Have no fear, Malcolm. Worst case this year is we run a few fundraisers so people can come see all our hard work, enjoy a BBQ and a presentation then w...

Re: Spoon frogs and other such craft work

Made a cute little Guy Taplin tribute a few days back. Always wanted to do a driftwood sculpture. There's just no way to know where the material came from. It could be from the other side of the world. Whatever the puffin was made from it's not any wood I've ever worked with before. Made it for the ...

Re: Spoon frogs and other such craft work

Absolutely fine to post that here. It's a gorgeous little boat and a cracking photo. I looked up where it is - Bloody Hell, Oz is a vast place! I went to Brisbane for four days a while back and remember feeling relieved when the aircraft made landfall over western Australia only to be equally let do...

Re: Spoon frogs and other such craft work

I have a particular fondness for his clock at home (the one in the kitchen) which is basically a vine which has surrounded the clock.... Vine 1.JPG Vine 2.JPG Made from hammered steel, powder coated green then hand finished. It's actually six parts with the joins hidden behind leaves. The centre se...

Re: Spoon frogs and other such craft work

Hi Ernie, Love the orchids, that's really lovely work. Flowers are my favourite subject (flowers and birds) and copper is a deliciously soft and comfy medium. Not used it extensively but when I tried carnations I concluded that aluminium (my favourite metal) was just too fickle for the job. Bare 0.2...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

for me a quiet weekend, a little bit of one handed sanding work on a rib, a chip butty with some very, very, good people, a good chat about using workshop tools, guitars and music with the next generation Sat was a great day - very relaxing and the first time in a very long time that we took our fo...

Re: New Members

the Ruskin Museum will receive the parts of K7 that they own...delivered in a skip. Maybe you can help Ads and me build his guitar then. He wants to make a bass and I've always fancied a stab at a guitar but apart from that our experience amounts to zero. that said, our jet hydroplane experience wa...
