2 (€) Cents worth....

1) Yes, your turn.
2) Don't think so, your turn.

As you have already heard, a Nutty is a Nutty is a Nutty, change it and you suffer.....

However, give it a go, few minutes to knock up whatever you fancy and see how it flies.
Report back here how you get on remembering how much fun you will have trying.....

That’s the sole Reason we never called our circular mutation a Nutball … It’s Not a Nutball, but something different ( Potato Chip , my design ) …Elliptical heat bent dihedral , V tail … Not a Nutball

Paramount is spending $7m in our town making a move and that includes a downtown face lift. That's only a fraction of the huge budget they're spending here on the island.

You'd think we were in the US of A right now. Got the stars and stripes all over the place, a new sheriff's station, US post office, a new barber shop, donut shop, restaurant, hotels, general store, etc., everything but a hobby shop.

Lots of big budget movies made here over the years, the last two Superman flicks and the last Godzilla just to name a few of many. All made to look like the settings are in America.
