Without wings and a few other changes it could be an amphibious bus.  What a revelation  :))

Inventor, which comes with an AutoCad upgrade to Version 2014 (I'm using Version 2008 at the moment). Although I can make AutoCad dwgs with Inventor, it's a differently written program so I'm told.

I will finish the build, it's just going to take me some time and whenever I can get to it.  I've been doing 12-16 hour days just lately, mentally wasted at the end of the day and I've still got to learn the new program when I'm not working.

I know it well.  We use it at work.

I'm sorry to hear this beauty is on the back-burner, but I completely understand.

That work thing has been no end of annoyance for me as well.

Please let us know when you get rolling with this incredible model again!

This will all depend on the learning curve I will be on, if I pick up on Inventor quick then I can get back to models quicker.

Meanwhile, now this GB is over, could the Moderators please move my thread back to Current Builds.  Thanks.

I've just discovered this totally bonkers (yet all rather logical) beauty. Dare I bump?

Definitely worth a bump, Old Bean!

Perhaps Mr Kitnut will have some news for us on this wonder soon...

Very Very NICE!!!

I love the undercarriage setup...and the work gone into it!! A really interesting concept and it just looks right! It's a wonder they didn't try to give he wheels!

Well -- unfortunately life took a quick (but painful) kick at the family jewels  ---- the work that I did at home came to a sudden stop --- had to go get a regular job again (one I happen to like though, I work at Calgary International as a security escort, get to drive out around the aircraft and such) but the hours are very long each day (12-16 is the norm at the moment) so the hobby has had to take a backseat for a while -- again   :(   :icon_crap:
