Where do I send the delivery address for the "little" one?

I'm available to help unload, show where to park, etc. at any time or place.

I'll even go pick it up!

What is that little bumperette-thing on the stem of the Thunderbird?

Anchor I think.

Or if you prefer your motor yacht a little more understated, here is a Camper and Nicholsons offering from 1915 (the owner still owes me my copy of Skene's Elements...)

Torpedo tube... James Bond would fit right in with that boat.

I prefer your offering Andrew. The Thunderbird is a wee bit over the top for my tastes.

Very art deco in design, I can see the DC3 reference. And I understand the model railway anology, the pleasure is in the creation not the use.

What a beauty!!!OMG! <3
What is Thunderbird? It almost looks like an old Dodge build, with the Art Deco upgrades. Very good eye on the upgrades. It suits her well.
I think I'm getting the "vapors"-;) *Swooning*
