The ultimate rib ?

There are a lot of rib builders on the forum and some of the posts may be of interest to them .who knows.

The question is .

If you had the chance to design a new rib what would you like to see built in ?

Or what concept ideas would you as the end user like to see in production ?

Or will it be a mix and match from a number of ribs.

It's your design so what would you like ????

We are doing this in practice, work is afoot for a modular RIB which can be reconfigured with just a socket set.

Your not doing Lego right if you need tools.

And it is hard to get it to float. Or stay together with any horsepower attached.

See if James May will have a go, but be warned. His Lego house was crap

Good to know you've still got plans for this. I remember your thread about it last year. Sounds really interesting

Cheers

I saw the May house, it was all too tongue in cheek dressed up as serious.
