Thanks. I think the chute issue may still persist... we'll see. Just remember I said 'inspired by'.

Thanks so much! BARCLONE is FULL of inspirational designs and I still have not figured out why this amazing resource goes unappreciated. I suspect, to be honest, being on YOF is not getting it the wide appreciation it deserves. But that is PURE speculation.

The vast array of just upscale possibilities is staggering. The whole schoolyard sounders deserves upscales. Not mention 100s of others.

As for Deucey 2.5, the whole paint job close up shows blunder after blunder. Really bad. But from 5 meters or more, she looks the doddle!

Cheers!
