Absolutely stunning build.  Though Turbinia herself is impressive, I especially like the cutaway dry dock display.  What a great way to show off a model.

Thanks, its always a challenge to display models, I thought the dry dock gave it scale and presence

I believe this is the man himself standing on board by the steam value that was the only speed control, it must have been one heck of a ride...  I read that they took it to France for an exhibition and the channel crossing nearly finished them off, it was no sea boat...

Something with that long shallow draught and narrow? I'll bet it wasn't.

And probably horrible to manoeuvre at slow speeds too.
