I had to look that one up.
Not a land crab but you might say trailer trash.

Well done Chevvron - we don't want fishy things hanging about too long. This is a scale flying model of the full size built by The Little Jet Co in the UK that a friend was tasked with designing the ski undercarriage. Its angle of attack varies as speed increases and as ballast water is jettisoned from the hull.

Over to you Chevvron.

Spot on Oxenos. It must have been very interesting working at Saunders-Roe, they seemed to do a lot of prototype work on all sorts of machinery. Anyone here worked for them?

Over to you Oxenos.
