Hi Harpye,
Thanks a lot. Yes my dream is to fly. But I need a lot of help (not that difficult to find) and a lot of funds (very difficult to find). economy.

Hi Nicolas

I just saw the new jet you drew, it looks absolutely great.... and man you are the master of Rhion. If you ever come to denmark I will give you a model so you can practice, I mean that!

Hi Frank,
You 're too kind man, thanks a lot. As for the siren the more I look at it the more I find that something bugs me with the design. I've started with some minor tweaking but I think I'll end up with a major redesign of the whole thing. I want it to be equivalent in grace and beauty with the chimera. My final goal is to design and a final third jet (all with some sort of a "family look"). That will be the Echidna. The "three mean sisters" will be safeguarding the european skies from then on.

I find it fascinating to see what was developed by these craftsmen near 300 yrs ago. And you see what a metal lathe looked like then, or hand-tools or primitive metallurgy. No cad, cnc, lasers. Incredible really.

If you havent watched the TV series or read the book about John Harrison, I'd highly recommend it.

series is on you-tube!

PM'd you Harpye. Sorry for the thread sidetrack. I just know when you get into this story we will all benefit by watching as you build this thing on your CNC!

See attached picture of a quad I might build soon. HK electronics, Neu batteries, and Scorpion motors.

It looks rather badass.
