Default UC Hull

Must have been driving past this for years, finally saw it last week. Rear half has been cut a lot, and nothing lying around, but there is a number for those interested in that sort of thing.

G'day Rich,
Looks better than a few I've seen lately. Are you keen enough?
Rick

Default Met Gas carrier

Hi Guys,
My Met gas carrier has just arrived, and I have spent the last hour trying to post pics of it for the members to enjoy, but it keeps telling me that a pop up blocker is turned on, I have checked this and it not on,I am about to chuck this computer in the creek, any ideas ?
Ron

Hi Rick
"Are you keen enough" sounds like some lame song title from the seveties. But, I can assure you of two things
1/ I am in no way keen enough to takle this
2/ If it was worth doing I'd be keeping it to myself, not posting photos of it all over the place (if I knew how to post icons I would put a smiley here)

Ron, still no luck? I'd blame Jiff or Keith. May not get your pics up, but you will feel better.
Rich.

Richard, if you aren't going to tackle it, would you mind forwarding the details to me. I could go another project..

Who's a saucy boy then? Tsk-tsk...

I don't know what either of you are doing wrong, but don't use the Quick Reply thingy, go Advanced. All of the smilies will be on the right hand side of the reply window, and as far as pictures are concerned, use the Manage attachments button below; this will bring up a pop-up window in which you browse for, select and upload your pic(s). I've extended the parameters to what is acceptable because what appears are only thumbnails until you actually click on the pic, and thus we don't have an enormous number of pictures in any given thread loading fully even though you're not going to look at them.

You do have to have popups enabled for this website anyway - it'll be in your browser settings someplace.

Geoff, is there a way that this site could be set up so that when we try to post a photo that it would automatically re size what ever it is we are trying to post. So that us with no brain for this computer technology could get along easier?

I wish it were that easy! Unfortunately, I don't possess that type of internet programming brain... in the meantime, it's not rocket science and the restrictions are limited, so at least it's easier than it was! If there's a real problem, you could always send the full-size pic to someone like myself or Hanno, and we'll do it for you, but sometimes that takes time depending on the constraints imposed upon us in our own lives.

Hi Ron - should be an M.G.2A by Vic Rail under Contract No. MOV.1228 and probably 1943 manufacture. Is the make date on the plate.
Bob
