so here are some of mine.

Very nice idea, Pete!

Nostalgic for me as well, having hand-pinstriped hundreds of Concours cars in a former career... not many photos, though.

Yes indeed - we identified it as an Allard P1 the last time you posted it. :p

It's a Junkers Ju 52, 'Tante Ju' (Auntie Ju) as it was often known in Germany in its heyday.

Edit, can you believe that I spelled Germany wrong? I'd better stick with Deutschland in future.

It's not often that I get a chance to post boat pics on here, so these are a couple of mine.

Travelling home through Germany last September, we found a hotel right on the Rhein, just south of Koblenz. It was called “Das Boot”, the place was built in the shape of a boat hull, and all the staff wore nautical uniforms. I enquired about a room, and the guy answered, “Bitte wait ein Moment, I’ll ask der Kapitan if we have ein Kabin frei”, all slightly pretentious, but it was a lovely place to stay with excellent food. They gave us a room with balcony on the first floor, I got myself a beer from the bar, and was sitting in the evening sun watching all the river traffic, something I could do all day long, when I heard the unmistakable beat of paddles. It was the Rhine’s last paddle steamer Goethe, built in 1913, largest side-wheeler in the world, and only re-engined from steam to diesel about two years ago, it runs every day from April to October.

Posted Image


About four years ago, we went to Dresden, another wonderful trip through what used to be East Germany, where the Sächsische Dampfschiffahrt run a fleet of nine paddlers, still steam powered, and they run a constant daily service up and down the mighty Elbe.

Posted Image


It’s a fascinating place, what used to be East Germany, lots of interesting old vehicles around, and very friendly people. We found steam powered scheduled services on some railway lines out of Meißen and Dresden.

Forgive me for straying off-topic again, but since you mentioned boats...

The Bluenose was a beloved fishing and racing schooner built in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in 1921. After years of nearly undefeated racing, she was sold for purely commercial use and sank off the coast of Haiti in 1946. She is immortalized (among many other places) on our Canadian dime.

In 1963, a replica was built in the same shipyard in Lunenburg, using the original plans. The Bluenose II was bought by the Nova Scotia government in 1971, and operated as an 'ambassador' for the province until a 'refit' (in reality a complete scrapping/replacement) in 2010.

I know bugger all about ships and sailing, but while living in Nova Scotia became enthralled with the sheer beauty of sailboats. So here is the Bluenose II in the summer of 2009, her last full season before being scrapped:

I know this is not exactly 'motorized', but there is a motor in there somewhere... :blush:

And here's one I built earlier, roughly thirty years earlier as far as I can remember, sailing in company with a friend's, not a brilliant pic, but it's scanned from an old 6" x 4" print. I made a fibreglass hull for these two, I've still got the mould stored away somewhere in the roof of my garage. My model has a non-scale motor hidden away in there as well, insurance for when the wind drops.

Edit, just re-scanned and improved slightly, mustn't lower our standards must we?

Again from distant memory something like 1/36th, which gave a hull length around 33" and over boom & bowsprit about 48", we didn't do metric much back in those days of course. If anyone asks for pics of models, the floodgates will open, so please don't tempt me, I've got hundreds of them, built up over many years of glueing little bits of wood together.

According to this site FLM Panelcraft converted the basic shells, and the interiors and cosmetics were then fitted by either Crayford, HR Owen or Hurst Park Motors.

Don't often see these on the bench:

Rolls-Royce Phantom 3 V12 - 60 degrees V12, no offset - used fork-and-blade conrod system. 7 point something litres.

There are no factory workshop manuals for these engines, and virtually no spares, which makes overhauling them a challenge. Oh, and if the alloy block is rotten, you have to make your own new one. Take one large alloy ingot, hammer, chisel, and start sculpting . . .

It would be presumptuous to think anything is still operational in Abergavenny... :D

...and do the AA boys still salute you if you have their badge attached to your chrome plated bumper?...

Something very mechanical and at home in the air and on water. A well insulated [see the bundles of insulation on the wing] Catalina flying boat at Lake Boga Victoria. It has been on a plinth for decades and recently [2009] they built a hanger over it. It was not quite finished when I took the pic.
http://imageshack.us...carparts408.jpg
The very broken spare parts department for the Catalina. It has been laying on the ground since the base was decommissioned after the war.
http://imageshack.us...carparts416.jpg
Not 1909 but Xmas 2009. A small selections of steam boats at the Echuca Vic wharves. There is over 20 true historic ones based there plus as many again modern ones. [Paddle boats]
The first boat The Pevensey was the boat used in the 'All The Rivers Run' TV series.
My picture shows the wharves towering over the boats as the water was very low with the then drought. They have been loading the boats from the top deck of the wharf in recent years as the water is in abundance. The wharves are only about half the size they used to be when the riverboat traffic was at its peak.
Echuca is the No 1 restoration point for these boats, which are very tough old girls as they have had decades of adbandonment but they still manage to get them back on the water. Most of them are at least partly replanked in the original River Gum they were made from. Which grows in abundance in the Echuca region.
The PS Adelaide sat on the bank as a memorial for 30 years, they replanked and refloated her and she is doing a lot of tourist work with and without barges. And some genuine river cargoes too. As do many of the others restored.
When I was there in 2009 they were then doing a steel ribbed boat, but again planked in rivergum.
There is probably about 40 all up paddle steamers on the Murray these days. Not bad out of about 200 all up originally. Some are small working boats, fishing, cargo, even a Church boat, some where always work boats for maintaining the River and some were large cargo boats or both passenger and cargo boats. Many were still working up to the 50s, or The Industry the 70s.

Click on the image or the words to get the pics please. For some reason they are not going on here properly.

I am doing the same thing, following Bobs instructions to the letter.
Last time I posted some came up properly and others came up small.
Recently I have been having problems with this site to do anything, sometimes threads will not even open or text will not go on. Only this site.
Thanks for the pics being up as they should be.
