A name for Pud's Thruster


Recommended Posts

Way back when I first started this restoration project I did some preliminary work on a name for this aircraft, complete with artwork similar to WW2 bomber type artwork.

 

I have suggested a name to my friends who are saying "Don't do it" because of the obvious connotations. You see, my wife is known as "Gay" so I wanted to call the Thruster "Gaygirl", but you see what my mates are getting at no doubt!!!

 

Anyway, here are some sample from WW2 bombers although Gay is saying "NO!!!"

I can't understand why she is saying "No" really:oh yeah:

 

The photos below are of my wife when we were young, and I reckon could be a good basis for some tasteful art work.

Waddayareckon Guys; Should I continue with this or take the advice of my mates and drop the whole idea?

Go for it Pud, she's you aircraft and you do what you want. After all, any advantage to get the bank manager/best mate/spare time controller onside has to be worth it.kiss.gif.b85e4cbf93c012b498aab8fe7d5a5fe6.gif

I think "Puds Thruster" would be a good one! However, you would have to be VERY careful which picture you chose to go with the name, or you might get moderated out of the sky!006_laugh.gif.0f7b82c13a0ec29502c5fb56c616f069.gif

 

.... but don't hex it, wait till it flies!:big_grin: ... (soon I hope!)

 

Cheers

The mind boggles/rebels when thinking of nose art that'll combine Gay and Thruster. Serious opinion/advice? BE BLOODY CAREFUL! They both look like a keepers. So try not to p**s either of them off.

 

Perhaps a complete side step like, "Pud's other Kitten (or maybe Cougar)", should be considered.

I like the idea of the fuselage artwork... and the name wouldn't have been out of place in the 40's I guess.I reckon we could call it the Pudster...008_roflmao.gif.692a1fa1bc264885482c2a384583e343.gif

I agree with you Winsor68, I think that ' The Pudster' is a seriously good and apt name. 107_score_010.gif.2fa64cd6c3a0f3d769ce8a3c21d3ff90.gif

Now that Winsor68 has moved it and Guernsey has seconded the motion to call your aeroplane The Pudster, I am happy to support it with my vote.

All we need now is for your wife to approve it and the motion will be carried.:thumb_up:

Have you seen the latest ' Pudster Thruster'?

 

Yes...I saw the 'Pudster Thruster' last week in Darwin.

 

I was thinking of buying a Thruster and I've heard that the latest super dooper renovation is the 'Pudster Thruster' from WA.

Raaus returns to its roots with the release of the 'Pudster Thruster'.

WA the place to be and the home of the 'Pudster Thruster.'

 

The 'Pudster Thruster' breaks the Australian Aviation Record for the most talked about recreational aircraft.

The name is starting to catch on :thumb_up:008_roflmao.gif.692a1fa1bc264885482c2a384583e343.gif

Pud, isnt Gay short for Gaylene?

 

Mate, if I was you, I would plaster her photo all over the plane to ensure I got enuff brownie points to last a lifetime

 

You never know, you could need a few brownie points in the future 011_clap.gif.c796ec930025ef6b94efb6b089d30b16.gif011_clap.gif.8adfe837b4189ee6622bf4917d6a88c0.gif011_clap.gif.c796ec930025ef6b94efb6b089d30b16.gif

Isn't it a bit sad that a lovely name came to stand for homosexuality. My late Aunty Gay used to love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when she met them. Her favourite intro line was "Hello I'm Gay". Pud I'd ask your lovely girl what she would like & do it.Cheers & good luck with it.

Hehehe, Yes my wife long ago resorted to intoducing herself with the words "My name is Gay" to avoid the looks she invariably got by saying "I'm Gay".
