Another 1/12th scale model, this time it is a Brisbane Sulky, so named because of it was very popular in Brisbane Qld as it was easy to enter and exit the vehicle with the way the shafts were bent. The bent shafts go from the tip, right thru to the rear as one piece, which makes it different to a Bent Shaft Sulky. Made once again from the drawings of J.E.Bishop, printed in The Australasian Coachbuilder & Wheelwright, June 1911. The scroll work I swiped from a vehicle that Ian Stewart-Koster lined many years ago, made the scrolls on the ALPS MD5500 as decals.

Another remarkable work of art. (But again you uploaded linked images and eventually they will disappear, resulting in great loss to all of us.) -- Russ

Russ, when I try to reduce the size of the photos, they then become about the size of thumbnails and become useless to look at for detail.

Is there a way to reduce the size of the photo, to the req 230KB max and keep the size of the photo as is, namely a large photo?

Greenie, the short answer is yes, but it depends on what software you have. I can change the size and the resolution of photos independently.
Do you have a way to see what the resolution of your photos are? If you can make the resolution 72 dpi you should be able to post them larger than thumbnails.
Others can help with more specifics, I'm not sure about the exact how.

Another option that I see, but don't know how to implement is the ability to poat a photo on the forum and the viewer can click on it to enlarge it. here's an example:
http://www.finescalerr.com/smf/index.php?topic=3031.0
Even those enlargements aren't as big as your photos in your thread, but may Ray Dunakin can help explain how he posts larger photos?

Hi greenie

What a beauty, your Sulky. The dimensions, the colors - everything in perfect harmony ! A piece of art indeed !
And at the first glance I had a "deja-vu" experience. No, no, I don’t want to hijack your thread here, but those carriages I had seen some years ago,
when I researched the fate of that heavy monster in the foreground.
As you live in Brisbane, I believe you know the story behind that photo here (And there are such Sulkies in the background?) …



Kind regards
Peter

Here’s a little bit of true blue Australiana, I doubt if anybody from overseas will know about the name Furphy and just what it means to an Australian.

It is a 1/9th scale model of a Number 4 Furphy Water Cart.
Furphy has a number system for all the different Water Carts that they used to make, they used the same barrel, but put it on different sized carts, hence the number system to identify each different type when ordered.

The reason I have gone to 1/9th scale is because I bought a miniature cast brass water tank end from Furphy’s of Shepparton. Didn’t take me long and I now have as many end caps as I need, all made from cast resin.

I contacted Furphy’s from Shepparton and they very kindly sent me the working drawings for this No 4 Cart, so this is what eventuated.

Being a No 4, it has the larger spoked wheels, 3’3’’ with a 3.5” wide rim, spokes are made from steel rod, with small cast iron hub fittings, for the spokes and steel rim to attach it all together.

Drew it all to size and then made it from that drawing.

Excellent!

What is the purpose of the little "horn" on the spigot?
