I smell a sizeable rodent, i have worked with teams that have built movie models and regularly work with 3d printers, i dont car if you are ILM, no company could create CAD drawings and 'print' a 12 foor hull in 3 days, anyway. 3d printing wouldnt be the best way to go about it, cnc milling foam blocks might be ok.....
Added to which, on the movies and tv ive worked on, no producers give scripts to outsourced model companies, they are highly secretive about them to say the least, .
If i was him, re the bluebird k7, 30 seconds of research would show that the real thing is nearing completeion and would be the best source of info.


This all seems like utter fantasy to me

perhaps as john hasn't been on and responded to requests for photos and some criticism for a few hours, this film may be his epitaph.

It seems really odd that someone should devote so much time and effort into hoaxing a bunch of not very important model boat modellers. What on earth was he trying to achieve? He is obviously well educated and intelligent but chose to waste his talents on something that was ultimately totally pointless.

Just goes to show that there are some very strange people out there as well as President Trump - (oops, sorry Martin!)

Your guess is as good as mine.
But someone said earlier, rightly or wrongly it was at least more interesting than a lot of posts they read on here. A little insulting to all you boat builders on the, but he certainly made his mark, in that it put members for and against  at odds with each other.
Perhaps that was his motive. who will ever know.

Coincidence

Google - Mr Paul John Steadman

Or have a look at http://www.endole.co.uk/profile/profile_new.php?id=14208511

Look at the companies and what they do......

PS. What do Trump's Secret Service guys shout if he is about to be shot?

Like I said coincidence!

Picture - You set yourself up on a forum and mistype your surname - you can't find how to / can be bothered to change it. ( or maybe you did this deliberately)

Very often people of a certain generation use their middle name

Like I said coincidence but a whole list of film production companies, the odd design company...... coincidence? I guess we will never know unless film hits the big screen in a years time

Pray tell, was he pushed or did he just not turn up for work ?   Did the executive axe fall (Martin) or did Mr X realise he had been rumbled and depart of his own free will. Maybe we can have the final word now.

In the motor trade, he would have been called a tyre kicker WITH ATTITUDE {-) {-) {-)


I am really surprised that a lot more members did not see through his strange behaviour from an early part in his "history lesson".


I suppose it comes from the gullible acceptance of the British nature as a whole.

I think we did Jim but were too polite to say so - another British trait.

Plus I was curious to see how this would all pan out. It was rather inevitable that he would overreach himself - with jet propelled boats down the Bedford levels.

Still can't understand why he devoted so much time and trouble to something so trivial.

Gents....could I confirm to you that our Martin   :police: was well aware some two weeks ago of certain inconsistencies' as provided by the original author of this thread

I suggest we owe a note of thanks for the way this matter was handled with the aplomb as shown  :-))

I agree Colin, and what I can't understand is WHAT was it all for, and that from looking at the link supplied by Martin about "scarface" on the film forum, the length of his offerings, he either has a lot to say for himself and it would be hell being trapped in a kitchen with him at a party, lol or he fancies giving Tolstoy a run for his money with the next historical blockbusting best seller. {-) {-) {-)
