Thanks, Bill - The pictures I was trying to remember were right here on BPL all along. I had been scouring through your other blogs, (Ultralight Skunk Works and 6 Banana Designs) as well as the Yahoo MYOG group!
Even if the stuff you start with makes you laugh it's an important part of the inventive process. The early projects have certainly taught you good methodology for how to design and build prototypes, which pay off now that you're working with expensive materials.
And Ben, thanks for the link but I know that one already ; ) What I meant in the earlier post was that I couldn't find reference to this certain project within that blog.
