designers choose to follow the known steps in aviationdesign. Mostly the endresult will
look the same as the project of another designer, who follows the same route.
Sometimes a designer chooses to follow his own yellow-brick
road. These designs can be succesfull or be a mayor disaster. A certain succes is not
garanteed. But that is mostly the fun in such a project.
Many such designs are being calling "ridiculous".
But sometimes a designer walked a new road and made something that did function well or
even was a improvement. Still most people remain sceptic and the designer will have a
problem to get his design commercialy a succes.
Some designers die before their "brain-child"
gets build and flown. Maybe you could finish such a project in a succesfull flying
prototype. If you try to do this, be sure to contact the designers firm or family. There
could be a copyright! But maybe a widow would love to see the project of her husband
finished and will cooperate. Who knows.
