There's a lot of interesting pushers being shown here, is there any 'concrete' information on them or are these just some 'napkin' projects

OMG!  I never knew our brethren in NZ were so deprived!  Why isn’t there an international aid appeal going out for this.  Truly shocking... :icon_surprised:

Hmmm...looking at their facebook page, I note they are showing one of my old sketches from 2008:



See here:

Be nice if they credited it at least.

Mind you, I wonder if they realise this was a fictional creation of mine and not even napkinwaffe?

The look on the pilot's face kind of conveys a feeling of trepidation on his part:  "Oh shit!  Why did I take off?  It was so safe back there on the ship.  Landing this thing is going to be a bitch!"
