Topic Simply amazing By Marino Date 03-10-2007 00:14
This is the actual ships wheel (not a copy) of the ill fated 'Raglan' which was Sunk by the Germans 20th January 1918... Ted bought it by fluke at an auction as no one recognized it's importance because of the damage it sustained during the ships sinking and it only came to light when Ted was restoring it and noticed the faint engraving of the ships name...I'm sure you would appreciate this Lawrie..Ted worked for Harland and Wolff as a young man and was responsible for making all the model ships by hand and he built the huge model of the Canberra from plans which was then used to built the actual ship...

I was invited round for a second viewing of Ted's Models and I got a pleasant surprise when I was shown around his workshop... Not only did he make these wonderful models but when he was much younger he made these 1/3 scale models for his children to ride in.. They each were petrol driven and just like the real thing had electric start with key ignition and working clocks/ gauges ...They have lay untouched and covered in dust for almost 35years...Hmmm :-) He is also working on 1905 ish German car (I must remember the name) and he is building this car from a set of drawings he managed to get his hands on..As is the same with his smaller models he is manufacturing every part except the original engine that he bartered for...

Topic Generator By Marino Date 20-09-2007 12:12
Most small generators output around 850watts but these are of no use for mundane things like an electric kettle, large TV etc which requires more than these generators can cope with..You will need to buy a generator that suits your needs and is able to cover essentials like a fridge freezer, lights, small portable TV etc..The minimum requirement generator output would need to be at least 1.0KW.. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you plug it into your household mains system....

C1UB member LRS (Mantas) is selling his Williams 125 and he has agreed to ship it over to the buyer... As you can see from the photos it needs a windscreen but he assures me the engine runs fine...It has suffered some damage to the rear but again he assures me no chassis or rear sub-frame damage...He has purchased several parts including the headlamp panel and mirrors.. Please direct all your questions to him concerning this C1 but I will be glad to assist in any capacity....

Cloning is on the increase but I only covered the plate as a gesture of good courtesy since the trike wasn't mine..I can't see someone going to the bother of cloning this trike as it was hand made and would involve a certain level of skill...As you can see I didn't bother hiding my car's reg  :-)
