The site does allow anyone (moderators do not have special privileges) to post pictures directly to threads although there is, understandably, a file size restriction.

Others use free hosting sites that allow an image size to be selected to suit the intended location.

Regrettably, your picture renders the thread virtually unreadable.

TimberSurf what makes you think only moderators can post correct sized pictures?

Until I saw a moderator attach a pic in my thread, I have never seen the attachment box below. I then tried to edit a post and it did not show up! Proving I was not able (trust me, I have looked before!) to upload though if i edited the post that the mod had already attached to, I suddenly had the option! I have noted other strange occurrences on this forum before, one day I could not post and most of the pics were missing (on chrome), but a quick check on explorer showed the site was fine! I think this site has issues with chrome on my PC! Sorry for the pic issue, I will ensure the IMG or uploaded pics in the future are a sensible size or thumbnailed.

Oh well you got there in the end. All I can say is if I can post pictures, anybody can.

Here is the base, made from bits lying around the house (including a xmas bauble)
I will have another bash at attaching a file this time!
Here is the finished project 1

That is very impressive. How do the passengers get on?

Looks really good. Clearance looks tight for the bridge

I did not have a design for it (although I could have designed in CAD or 3D) it was just something in my head, so just tried bits together and let it grow into the shape in my mind. The end result was way too tall, so I stripped it down and hacked about 1/2 inch off the support beams below the load. It is still about 3mm too tall to get under my bridge
But then it's supposed to be an oversize (out of gauge) load!

The layout is very short as yet and too restrictive to allow much movement, so until the master plan comes to fruition, it will remain as eye candy in a siding or will end up in a display case.

It obviously has a design flaw, as it was constructed without a door for the passengers!

I am also told it needs side booster tanks, else it wont make it fully into orbit?

And here is the second, a power transformer, Lumsdonia version of a schnabel.
