Hey, I'm just curious... Where is Fraser?

Haven't heard from him in a while, I miss him. :(

I ask here, since he started this topic way back when.

My guess is it's pressure of work. I believe he has one of those high pressure, top of the greasy pole type jobs or it may just be that he has gone into hibernation for the winter.

I will email him, see if I can wake the lazy Jock :ani_whistling:

Don't know if this counts as we are saving up to buy our first REV but I am the guardian of Sailor99's custom Tigger, here is a picture, my wife about to launch at Calshot, Southampton, England, on a very cold day

Its a nice kite WarpSpeed, a really nice kite :), but I suspect John will have to say that this is only for the genuine article rev branded kites.:(

Tigger above was a kite I knocked up for personal use, but finding I wasn't using it it has ended up in the Hampshire Hoverers Kit. As WarpSpeed says he is the current guardian of the kit.

Steve, is this a total collection, or total new addons?

(just to be sure)

My total is down by one SLE, it went to a new home where it'll get flown a lot more. B)

On second thoughts, are we sure we want to.

The thought of Frazer as a naked Pole Dancer doesn't bear thinking about, sorry Frazer, don't take it personally, but I would stick to architecture if I were you.

Just to touch on it again, only factory Revs (including sanctioned masterpiece kites) are eligible for the count.

Rev IIs, Backtrackers, Blasts, etc, etc... All a-ok. ;)

Hmmm. Actual Revolution revs?

a 1989 Rev I ("patent pending") in pink and purple, signed by a couple of Hadzickis
a 1991 Rev II in cool rainbow
an SLE from the first year they were produced
a B-series (the vented is on order and I should have it next weekend...but it doesn't count yet!)
a one-off Bazzer 1.5 that was commissioned on my behalf by my best friend


Gee, only 13 months ago, and my count of bona fide revs seems to have almost doubled...another II with a race frame, the vented I was talking about, a 2~4, a 20th Anniversary.

Oh, wait, then there was the EXP and the SLE a single lining friend passed on to me. Which brings me up to 11 rev-manufactured kites. And I won't count the 14 sails I made that are in the house...or the mid-vent B Pro that will be here whenever Bazzer's cat is finished traipsing all over the panels...

Wait, can I count my rev-produced UFO?
