Gah, those need to be out from the elements!
Never ask 'Why?'
Always ask 'Why not!?'

Todays potential project car at the Label Traders Market.

And these were at the swap meet.

Obviously done deliberately, as a style.

The jar appears to be draining from the cooling system, in this case.

As does this more fixed installation. This is how you know it's time to admit your rod is a rat.





Ratty truck rod.

That's an SP. The Maltese cross suggests it was in West German use sometime after the war.

A bit of junk left lying around, with a story behind it.

I returned to the museum for Ausarmourfest 2017, and saw this:



Converted from an M3 Grant tank.

Somewhere in the original Kuranda markets, which, by the look of all the little haphazardly piled shop structures, should be more steampunk than you'd think - except it's ended up not steampunk, but hippie. There are some places to shop there that appear a bit more steampunk, though.



At Frogs' restaurant in the Kuranda Heritage Markets, these were part of a museum collection that ended up there.



This was Geronimo, a WW2 (C-47? Or DC-3?) which became an airliner after the war, remaining in the company's possession until the early 80s when it ceased trading. In 1983 it was partially sunk in the sea as a prop for Sky Pirates, a lacklustre attempt at a Two-Fisted Tale. When found in the junkyard, the owner just gave it to the owners of the place that would eventually become the Heritage Markets.

On my way back to Kuranda Station from the village...

Like the repurposed tanks, all stripped down - very sculptural. And markets are always good!

A small arcade has this for a gate guardian, but it's lost in that location:

Heap of great photos, selected! Will fire up the cameras in the warmer weather, and get out an about a bit - all very inspirational! Lots of old mining debris around this area, train tracks and trestle bridges. Hmm, I feel a visit to Mt Lawson State Forest on the horizon!
Then get a photo hosting site!

How're ye travelling, selected?
