Bugger me!!! Away from the keyboard for five minutes, Challenge is solved and all the green lights are out !

Thanks for the offers LM and Graeme, but the real answer is that I'll have to get some decent image editing software. 10K's worth of solid modelling CAD software, but NBG for bitmaps!!

Good luck with the car hunting David

DASA company launched the project TDEFS (Technology Demonstrator for Enhancement and Future Systems). Once again it was faceted stealthy demonstrator, but a much universal then Lampyridae, optimized for the european battlefield. The second important change was the using of the two engines. The basic concept was tested on a serie of the small models in high speed wind tunnel called FTTU (Fliegender Technologie - Trager Unbemannet). But in this time the faceted technology was evaluated against curves as obsolete and the program was cancelled.

Afternoon Reg et al.

Back from looking at car - going to buy it.

There is no way in this world that you will believe what it is.

Something like the Vickers Victoria or Valencia.
