Re: What have forum members been up to?

Well, keeping it under 25 pages is definitely the hardest part! When you're doing a survey or anything resembling research, there are only 2 sizes you can come up with: 1/5 of what you're supposed to write, or 5 times what you're supposed to write, the hardest part of that work is to bring it back t...

Re: What have forum members been up to?

Congratulations! Meanwhile, I have been... procrastinating! I'm glad that someone came up with a word for this, because back in my high school and university years, I practiced it a lot but didn't even know how to call it :lol: I'm supposed to come up with a hefty report on the habits of Chinese rea...

Re: New Members

Well, I'm not complaining about the sales pitch, since it's definitely something I'll be checking out! I don't use Facebook that often (I used to be a heavy user and am trying to browse the damn thing less) but I know what I'll do next time I'll visit that site.

Re: Nomadic, Titanic & other historic vessels

Well, cynism or not, I somehow would feel uneasy booking a cruise on that ship. Apart from the fact that it should be ridiculously expensive, it feels like you're asking for history to repeat itself, as if you were boarding an airship called the Hindenburg II or were about to supervise the construct...

Re: Other Speed Record Breakers Are Available!

Well, I thought I was a record vehicle enthusiast and that I knew quite a bit about the topic, but... It looks like I'm wrong :mrgreen: I don't know the majority of the names mentioned in that topic! I'll make sure to read about every single one of them since it's a fascinating subject, but it's goi...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

I was wondering, do you guys do these models entirely by yourself, or are there Bluebird kits? I've checked Scalemates for kits, only to find that many Bluebirds had been replicated... by ancient brands that have ceased their activity several decades ago.

Re: The Bloodhound SSC/Thrust/Noble Thread

If we're looking at full scale reproductions or our own fast speed designs, then I'm afraid that it's useless to ask the government (unless you want to ask the Chinese government, that is), at this point it's better to go search for funding among billionaires. Elon Musk would be the kind of guy to f...

Re: New Members

Hello everyone! I've joined this forum because I'm really into prototype/record vehicles from the X-15 to the Bloodhound SSC, and I could't gloss over the Bluebird vehicles. I wanted to discuss the design, creation and history of these projects as to learn more than Google and Wikipedia already gave...
