Could have been both as it ran under a GRP built in tank that was falling apart.
External blisters you could push a screwdriver straight through with little effort.
2 craft with desperately failing GRP tanks.

That doesnt look like water damage to me ... Looks like its been in a solvent? Could it have been sitting in petrol?

MY John, thats priceless! I understand, not all of the content, but i DO understand that my IT knowledge needs work----
Ive just gone over to Apple which does not seem to need resizing, as it loads up anyway.
KIP thanks for that MIME girl you tube thing. They are gorgeous and clearly had a load of fun making that. MOST entertaining, especially the "nude" bit------- :o

4Mbytes (4096K) is the file upload limit on the server.    Images are resized downward to 1024x768px after upload anyway so, to save yourself some time, just resize before uploading or attaching.  For Windows use Paint (in the Start menu) to open the image on your computer, resize and save - takes about 3 seconds.

It's always better to upload images to the Gallery rather than as an attachment to a post as it's then much easier to find the image later.  You can add a link (or links) to a Gallery image in your post just by copying the "Direct Link" URL that shows below the image when you view it in the Gallery.

Anorak? How does he know the spare tyres for the 1937  Rolls are originals? Because they are Dunlops marked "Made in the Irish Free State"which as everybody knows ceased to exist at midnight on 29th of December 1937.

OMG!!!

I worked  for a guy that had 2 of them in the early 80s  he also had 2  lola formula 5000, one that he had raced and one that had a burned out melted engine that Jim Clark raced and crashed..he sold both 10 years ago to a museum and then went and bought a new Lambo from the factory when he was about 70 and ran about with Italian plates on it till he passed away last year..his run about car when i worked for him was Ferrari 308 , you just could not go anywhere with him without everyone noticing you .

Jenson interseptor with the Ferguson 4 wheel drive
Whatever you do , do not call it an Interceptor with 4 wheel drive :) You will be quickly told its a different beast , 5 inches longer, different front suspension, main chassis tubes in a different place, wider nose etc etc.
