Re: Michael Schumacher/Formula 1

Not stunning in appearance, but actually quite advanced, not disimilar to the six wheel Tyrrell in concept. Not one, but TWO Rolls-Royce R types http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t215/f1steveuk/Thunderbolt-ssadend-Wellington-NZ-1.jpg I saw a side scan a few years ago that looked like it's still und...

Re: Michael Schumacher/Formula 1

Well from general motorsport, probably not, I know of a brand new, never put together, still wrapped in the wax paper, McLaren M23, but then again, there's 13 of those any way. So I would say, THE one to do would be

Re: The Australian Replica

I'd venture not, it 's what would be described as a "theatrical replica", enough to illustrate the subject, while being robust enough to display, and probably outside. I suspect once on it's plinth and at the right angle, it will be quite effective, and in reality it will fool 99% of those that see ...

Re: Michael Schumacher/Formula 1

Wouldn't be me breaking in, unless there was a Tyrrell 006, Lotus 91 or any other proper F1 car, or maybe a GT40 or a Porsche 917, then it might be worth the risk!!

Re: Michael Schumacher/Formula 1

Spot on Bill. I worked on a doco' about the Great Train Robbery, and spent time with Bruce Reynolds (and his son Nick). He was meticulous about his planning, but said, it was only when then got to the farm, and counted and stacked all the money, that he realised he had no idea what to do next! He wa...

Re: Technical Talk

Superb, thanks Bill, they look smaller than Crusader's and actually look smaller than what I thought was fitted to K7 http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t215/f1steveuk/k7ext_zps096aed3a.png but that may just be due to the angle thee photo is taken from? Anyway, they are smaller than K6's which accor...

Re: Technical Talk

Yes, the pic with the Pyrene van is mine (!!), but I am not at home (and wont be for five weeks) so no access. I;ll try a post a Crusader schematic later. From the size of the bottles, wouldn't have been much of a "hit" !! Having just looked, the schematics for K7 show two bottles, both on the port ...

Re: Technical Talk

Crusader had two bottles, which appear to be refillable, but I'd hope not with baking soda and water (as in my old brass car extinguisher. This puzzles me, as if it's refillable, how was the system pressurised etc. That K7's e...
