:rolleyes:
I hope you didn't take offense, Fred, but the activities of some of your "Zenrat Industries" builds cause some worry among our pacific croc hunters.  :angel:  ;D

No offence at all Loopy.
Since the Antarctic bomb (which destroyed the secret Japanese base) melted the ice and raised the sea levels the Southern migration of Salt Water Crocodiles has meant there are plenty to go around.  The People's Democratic Republic of Victoria merely wishes that hunters pay the appropriate fees and tariffs and retains zenrat industries to enforce the rules and make collections.  The PDRV has no comment to make regarding how zi goes about doing so except to say pay up or expect a torpedo up your six.   ;D

But Victoria is in the deep south, while crocs are only in the north, as can be verified from this very technical map:


PDRV has no right to interfere in the peaceful activities of our poachers collectivity!  :angry:
We'll appeal to the United Nations! Or, if everything fails, we'll move to another space-time continuum!  ;D
For the moment, a few photos of a complete typical skimmer of our fleet:

Ah, your (or is it Kit's?) map is slightly inaccurate.  Killer Crocs come down the East coast as far as "Mosquitos".
It is also missing flesh eating pigs, angry buffalo, spitting camels and of course drop bears.

Skimmer looks great.

It's OK, they are shown in the wrong place so they won't be expecting them.

Just keep an eye on Willem Dafoe's travel movements.

Superb idea and a lovely build all round. Almost Miyazaki. Really wished I'd photographed my Catalina TLC/Ekranoplan thingy....time to rebuild it ;D

It's an explicit reminder of why I should NEVER even think of going there.

Unless I'm inside a Challenger 2 that is!  :o

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
