FFR has been for quite some time, been secretly operating another facility. This manufacturing plant was an attempt to take ALL of our grievances of the entire build from beginning to end; things such as back-orders, body seams, poorly written manuals, the endless boxes to sort through during inventory, just to name a few.

With all of these things in mind, they feel they've successfully achieved a very streamlined facility. Everything that has been learned will eventually make it's way back into FFR's primary facility.

I received my "MKV" prototype. They even used a "plain" sequence number so nobody would know;

The uncrating (officially FFR 4198-MKV):


Note instead of dozens of boxes, we now just have ONE box.

Improved body:

No seams, uniform thickness, with major cutouts done at no extra costs!

Inventory - it was one of the most laborious first-tasks everyone goes through and we tend to find missing parts; not anymore; it's all here. If it's missing, just search the crate; guaranteed it's in there somewhere because "they don't fall far from the tree":



Finally, a manual that everyone can understand and only 8 pages long!!!! Heck, they even tell you how to assemble the engine!!!



Time to get started... :D :D :D

Instructions are for people without immagination.

If you don't believe me, look at Hoofa's work.
