Very nice - but haven't you just stolen everyone elses designs??? I mean it looks just like a RIB to me!!!

Seriously though looks like it will be pretty rapid - how well does it go?

Couldn't you have taken some better pics - a mobile phone? Come ON!!!

Nice looking rib there!

I would think the lack of steering wheel would suggest it hasnt gone that far yet but hey, its come togeather very fast soo far so who knows!

Top marks Lee, for some reason you have taken some serious flack over this but ignore everyone else and get on with it!
