Hi Nick

Yes, the purchase was made through my company in France. If you look down the side of the tubes, you can see its name (VVTS). Ed did a great job of cutting out the logo...

How much did it cost you to make the tubes?

Hi Henry

It's probably not a good idea to use this SR as an example of how much a re-tube for an SR4 would cost as the criteria that Ed (Ribraff) was working to was somewhat different to a normal re-tube.

This SR is purely designed to be crane launched therefore emphasis was placed on reinforcing the tubes for the eventual knocks it will take during launch/recovery. A heavier duty fabric was used along with other mods to make it more resilient.

Im sure if you contacted Ribraff, he would be pleased to discuss costings with you.

What i will say though is that, considering the build qulity, it was very good value for money.

Simon
