Planes... Fast flying, only shoting planes. But pirates need other toys for going aboard hijacked ships: helos.

I love the pirate tram!  ;D Dapol do a BR railbus which is much the same sort of thing, and could be converted.... :wacko:

It reminds me of the Michael Moorcock's Multiverse graphic novel, where in one mixed-up continuum, there was a highwaywoman holding up trams on Hampstead Heath... ;D

W class tram models are a popular in melbourne souvenir shops (for out international listeners the W class tram is synonymous with melbourne, so much so that there was a flying one in the opening ceremony of the commonwealth games when they were on in melb, and are still run in the city and on selected routs) but they can be kinda spendy (I usually eye them off then decide thye cost too much). A quick search reveals a number of models online though they seem to either be made by slave labour in third world countries and not terribly accurate (PW has a clock work tinplate "O" guage one from india which is properly proportioned at least) or white metal, intended for model railways and ~$100 AU, or possibly made in eastern europe to order and rare and cost ~$1000. I think i used to have a paper model which i think was either free or a postcard from some Melbourne landmark. in fact i was watching a 1:1 scale one on e-bay a few years ago, just a bit to big to fit in the garage though.

Gyarrr fearsom trams them be (and that railbus, a face only a mother could love :wacko: :wacko:).

I'll have to see if i can get some of those trams available for post to Australia, not that i will make pirate versions but they should come in handy for something.

I actually wrote a backstory for the pirate W class tram when i was in school which is why I've been threatening to make a model of one ever since. I still have the story but it's on my computer at home so it'll have to wait a couple of weeks till i get back.
