BLUEBIRD K7 WORLD WATER SPEED RECORD BOAT (Please check our feedback before buying)


NUMBERED LIMITED EDITION  Miniature Sand Cast, Hand Finished Model

Celebrating the rebuild of the World Water Speed Record Holder, these lovely little works of art are individually made and hand finished in the UK by the same people who have lovingly restored the spaceframe of Bluebird K7 for Bill Smith. Each one is unique and they are made from the same solid aluminium as the boat itself to a pattern hand modelled by Steve Harker, our Lancashire based artist.

 Each model is hand cast from aluminium including some of the alloy rivets from inside the old spaceframe that lay at the bottom of lake Coniston for 34 years. When we restored the actual spaceframe we saved a lot of the old rivets that were inside the frame after the body panels were removed for restoration. The cut off aluminium rivets were no use to the restoration so we threw them in the pot of molten aluminium to remould and be made into these little figures that were created by our artist. See the pictures showing our lads working on the subframe and a sample of the rivets shown with a piece of the broken Bluebird framework which was replaced with new metal

As keen collectors of Speed Record paraphernalia ourselves we decided to create something special to commemorate the restoration of the Bluebird and this batch of Limited Edition models have been made into these useable keyrings for you to treasure and enjoy.

They are nicely boxed and sent out with a short history of the boat and of the restoration that is being done to bring the Spirit of Donald Campbell's wonderful heroism back to life. Making a wonderful present or collectors item, the price of future editions will certainly increase due to renewed media interest when the boat goes back on the water. Share with us some of the magic of the legend that the brave record holder Donald Campbell created.

The model of the boat is solid aluminium and approx 2 inches long

Please note as each of these models are hand made the surface finish may vary and not be exactly as shown in the pictures

For each model sold we will make a donation towards the upkeep of K7 when Bluebird eventually goes into the Coniston Ruskin Museum,
