Model names eh? Just what do you call that new ARTF product or design?
Well unless you're particularly adept, it's not always as easy as it seems, especially if you're selling into a foreign market.
The two Chinese examples recently spotted at Nuremburg are perfect examples - they're not rude of course yet they're certainly memorable. Then again, perhaps a memorable name is all that matters.
We've been trying to think of the strange names we've seen over the last few years. Top Gun decided to call a patternship 'Fellowship' some five years ago and Graupner's evergreen 'Terry' trainer/warmliner (introduced in 2000) adopted the Ikea school for name selection.
Can you think of any others? We're sure there must be a few more out there so why not drop a post in the thread below?
