    Some questions need to be addressed here I think:

    -If we are to transfer the case from one house to the next (and Paul Capello is on board by the way so maybe he should be last), are we going to pick up the fees personally or shoot for sponsorship?

    -I think it would go much better if we have an overall design hashed out before getting this moving, or else it's going to me a quilt of non-meshing ideas splattered all over the case.

    -If a person receives the case to add their own touch, should that person clear the modifications with the group before adding them? Or just mod at will?

    -How sure are we that we can ACTUALLY get this bad boy to the pres? Can you get some sort of verification from your source, or at least some strong tips?

    -The issue of the president having to pay taxes on each gift he/she receives does raise the likelihood of it's denial. Is there a better way to present it such as giving it to "The ___ administration" or presidential campaign office?

    -As the mod grows, and more and more is painted on, glued on, bondo'd on, etc..., the work will become more and more fragile. We need to devise a safe method of transport that ensures each new recipient is spending all their time and effort repairing what was broken in the move.

    Thoughts?


    This project will obviously not appeal to non-US members for a variety of reasons, but you are all more than welcome to participate should you be inclined. We would just need to figure out a feasible method of shipping.

    OK, we'll hash out the design first. I personally like the Presidential Helicopter look.

    Dark blue, I think that would be the way to go for overall paint scheme. I think the main plan should be made before it is sent around to the best modders around here. Maybe someone could make a large, hard plastic case for it to be shipped around in?

    Also, Maybe a panel off one of the sides of the case could be shipped around to the trusted members here who don't really mod/don't have the experience for a presidential mod to sign. They could sign on the interior metal, not on the exterior or anything so it doesn't mess up the scheme.

    or we could always submit a digital signature (save tons on shipping...) and see if we can get them all printed out on a small plaque or maybe laser etched? seems like a better idea than shipping it everywhere...

    That would definitely work, we could all submit a vector illustration of our signature, and have them all laser etched on one of the inner walls of the case. But this is more of a finishing touch, let's get the design laid out first.

    Here's what I like so far. It's Dark Green, not Blue.
