And the Revenger was a Don Shead design.
I'm told by a VERY good and well informed source that Shead was never paid by Slogit for the design. Something about not being happy that it had a tendency to chine walk (or chime walk if your name is leeway), so Lorne Campbell was asked to tweek it, which he did by adding some reverse chines to it, which sorted the problem.
So there you go, how many Revengers sold? and god knows how many derivitives, and Shead never got a bean.
Slogits name is a swear word in the Shead houshold I would think.
