  • Hot Rod at West beach again!
    by Dave on January 6, 2020

    The day was a bit dismal, but the Hot Rods were Brilliant, as usual! I was testing a new 35mm lens, I think the pictures came out OK!… Click Here to Read More

  • The Brooklands Complex
    by Dave on December 27, 2019

    I’m sure that anyone who has followed Motor Racing for a while has heard of the Legendary Brooklands, the world’s first purpose-built ‘banked’ motor racing circuit, and also one of Britain’s first airfields. Brooklands has an amazing history, housing Britain’s largest aircraft manufacturers in the early 1900’s, providing invaluable support through the second World War, and producing aircraft up until the 1970’s Opened for Motor Racing in 1907, the track was the centre of British Motor Sport until 1939, when the last race was run. The complex is still open today, however, hosting Museums for British Motorsport and Aviation – even a great collection of London Buses and a Concorde! When the opportunity arose to spend a half day at Brooklands, you can bet I was excited! … Click Here to Read More

  • 3D Printing
    by Dave on August 17, 2019

    It’s been AGES since I posted anything here – life has been a bit hectic! Since my last post I’ve acquired a 3D Printer, and thought I’d share with you my first customised project. I’ve had a CCTV Board sitting on a cardboard eggbox for a couple years nows, as I wasn’t able to source a suitable case for it. Enter 3D Printer – problem solved! See the pictures at the bottom of the post. Anyway, the printer… I chose an AnyCubic Chiron, which has some pretty impressive specs – the Bed is 400x400mm, and it can print to a height of 450mm. It took me a few days to figure it all out – not assisted by some faulty original components, which I bypassed by pressing a Raspberry Pi into service loaded with the brilliant OctoPrint software. I’ve also learned the basics of a very cool little program called FreeCAD, which let me draw up the design, then offload the output to another open-source program, Cura, for slicing – then over to Octo to print.… Click Here to Read More

  • A Quick Visit to the National Motor Museum, Birdwood, South Australia

  • An Aussie Road Trip
    by Dave on October 20, 2018

    This road trip that I’m going to share with you came about as a result of an accidental internet find. I was looking through some websites of Australian Car Museums and noticed that one I particularly wanted to visit (sometime) was going to close down in a few months! Lost in the 50’s would be lost FOREVER! I had to photograph it! The Lost in the 50’s Museum So I started thinking seriously about it, initially getting in touch with the museum owner (Glen) to ask if he’d mind me coming in and taking a bunch of photographs. He didn’t mind in the least – so it’s on! Initially I considered flying to the museum, which is situated about 1500 kilometers from my home in Adelaide, South Australia.… Click Here to Read More

  • Kilgarvan Motor Museum
    by Dave on June 6, 2018

    Before you enter the sheds that house the museum, there are some very pretty gardens, and bits and pieces strewn around. Like this! So, I started walking around, and the first car I saw was this brand spanking new Porsche 911GT3!! What? It’s not a GT3? Sorry.. they all look the same to me.. Niiice! Ye Olde English Triumph Stag! I’ve never seen one of these before, a German Adler. This Rolls-Royce Corniche (in a MOST unusual colour!) was the result of a ground-up restoration by the Museum. A very nice Model T Ford! And a beautiful Gold Riley. Here’s a nice old Rover! This Hillman Special was most likely something in it’s day! And a STUNNING Rolls-Royce Phantom. And her Flying Lady emblem. A very cool Sunbeam Alpine which appeared to have been modified for racing. And a very sweet Isetta 3-wheeler – these are VERY collectible now! Every car had a history – you should visit and hear about them 🙂 You can see the rest of my pictures HERE! … Click Here to Read More
