The great Guru says its natural selection . If daft people want to watch a humourless person opening a box with fake gravitas , then its great because it keeps that lot out of our way . They wont come looking here . We havent left any bread crumbs , .....or .... biscuit, erm ......crumbs . They wouldnt know their HOBs from there NOBs anyway .

Dont tell em nuffink.

I have been desperately trying to avoid adding a post to this thread as it would be far to easy to stray from the, rightly, high standards expected of a HOBB (mentioning no names but Ron and Peter might take a moment to look closely at their behaviour) but a danger lurks in the Frequently Uninformed Chinese.......oh.

No no no, let the ARTFers continue, after all they are all candidates to be NOBBed.

For all the good solid technical advice this forum has provided, it all falls into a back seat when compared to this thread!

I am actually working on importing a Chinese Kylie Minogue. We expect a reasonable facsimile, although at a slightly reduced scale, and with some questionable functionality. For most people, it will almost certainly be good enough. However, all good NOBs know the benefit of crafting their own...

Questionable functionality will make the Minogue replica very accurate..

What we really need is a replica of that ghastly 'professional know-all' TV woman who tells us how to make Christmas decorations, lay the table, wrap parcels so they look pretty, make avocado and quinoa canapes, tend potted plants, and how to buy a house.

It could put our ARTFs together for us.

As Richard said, there was no real general consensus, the B&P Defiant was liked by a few but, IIRC the Tempest was the one that got most votes (after the P51 that is).

As for a fully working Kylie, I think I might prefer her to be battery powered and pocket sized too (I think that would be about 3/4 full size wouldn't it?). Ah, I should be so lucky (think I may have strayed off course again, sorry.)

As long as it's in the white "dress", or what remained of it, a la "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" video (prophetic title), not too fussed re size. Laser 70, whatever.

Currently working on the Minogue-alike. Obviously, there is a considerable amount of product testing. It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it.

We will of course have a bespoke NOB-friendly Kylie-clone, especially for you.

I'll get me coat...

Erm.....Any plane of '70' size upwards, be it designed for glow, petrol, or electric. The propeller doesn't know what makes it go round .

Preferably a blow-up one for portability. My car came with an electric pump for the tyres.

Please send mine in a box that says "Barclays Bank - Addressee only"

Wrt the scale of the Kylie 'droid, having seen the 'full size' in the street in London some years ago, I'd have thought that anything less than 1:1 would be in danger of falling down the side of the seat cushion, never to be seen again.crying

p.s. That's to say, she's tinyfemale

Kim, a good point. Whilst a Mini-ogue would be convenient for storage purposes and would occupy much less workshop space, it would be largely impractical...

Look , I am going to have to apologise to the moderators soon . I dont know how we got here from a simple suggestion to a China man, that none of us will ever meet or correspond with .

The simple conclusion has to be , that you all want a small sporty model that is easy to live with .(thats one new thread )

And another area of keen interest is "Attractive Blondes" , an area which I consider myself as perhaps not an expert ,but rather a keen amateur . (that will be thread number two).
