Dave,

That's what I like about your posts; no sugar coated answers.

As I said, it was a tricky one, and I am still redesigning it!
I've changed a number of things...more than once.



Only thing left to modify, is the Windshield.
It took me four tries to get it to the right size and fit...
and then I decided the shape was all wrong. LOL

So now, I have redesigned it again,
and I am just about to test build it...again.

I thought you(Clif52) might like to try it as well?
This offer is just for Clif....since he started this thread...please don't ask.

You are welcome to wait until it is released publicly (in the New Year)
OR you can try it now.
Let me know if you are interested...you'll have to email me.
And I'll send you a "work" PDF.
Thanks for the offer AirDave. I'll send you a private message.
Clif

I've got multiple people sending me messages...

it states quite clearly in my earlier post that I am still working on the final version of the Prowler model.

It also states VERY clearly that the model will be released publicly in the New Year.

Its also clear that my offer of an early version of the model was offered only to Clif52.

So why am I getting these requests?
Is it that hard to read the entire post and respect whats been said?

Maybe because in English the pronoun "you" is confusing when talking in singular and in plural.

In the last paragraph of your original message, in can be interpreted both ways:

True: the previous paragraph introduced the reference to Clif52, and the second paragraph made a correct use of the pronoun "you" to indirectly address the person whom you addressed before (Clif52).

However, that ambiguity of the English language (that dates to many centuries back) makes people think that since it was a new paragraph, the subject changed, turning it from the singular you/Clif52 to the plural you/the-readers.

So the reader interprets that "you" as he/she prefers (reader charges it with a plural concept that includes the reader), because unfortunately the second paragraph doesn't mention Clif52 again to solve the ambiguity.

I'd say that's the reason why.

I almost PM'ed you asking for it, until I realized there was a possible contradiction derived from the "you" ambiguity: If the offer was "for Clif52 only", there could not be an open offer to everyone else too.

Maybe you need to come up with a 'No Requests' emoticon

Or dig out the old butterfly boat

Sorry AirDave! Seems like when I ask about a model I open up a can of worms.

I'm sorry...but you(Ruben) seem to have totally ignored this sentence:
Quote:
This offer is just for Clif....since he started this thread...please don't ask.
This sentences supersedes and overwrites all the other sentences.
There is no ambiguity to discuss.
There is only the choice to read...or not to read.

I created a model and offered the early version to Clif.
I think that was clear.
Clif didn't do anything wrong here. Lets not let him feel like this is his fault.

Some people just chose not to read the entire thread
...or they read it and ignored it and asked me anyway.
Basically no patience.

I get it...we all want it. We all want it first. We all want it fast. We all want it now.
LOL
Its okay...I'm laughing about it now.

You will all get your turn...be patient.
But please, read the posts entirely and respect what has been posted.

You guys know that I release these models when they are ready.
So why are you asking for private releases?

I don't keep Koolwheelz models private and I don't usually entertain private requests
So why would you assume thats the process here today?

I only brought this up because this time I got more than one request.
And I thought I had explained things clearly.

Sheesh...the model sheet isn't even finished yet!! LOL
