Hi there, I'm back

I agree the model is nice, but for exploration one would need more visibility/viewpoint I think ;)

I like this one very much, eric! Going with a single float makes it look even faster!

You should consider entering this beauty in the the Retro-Futuristic GB. Call it a 1920 Schneider Cup concept racer.

One of your best yet!

That would be more like 1930.  ;)
