@GSB - nice - Rotors on a Toybaru :)

@Chris: Hmmm... More "plectrum" shaped... :) Wouldn't like to think what damage that would do inside the rotor chambers ;)

I don't think so Sean.

That kit is really for the 192 not even the 231.

They do a kit for the MX5 including an HB4 but I've not seen any with Xenons.

A slightly wonky rotor shaped bowl:

Alarm at Alexander Palace (there's also one the same nearby to where I work, but I'd look a bit suspicious taking a picture!):

Spent yesterday morning in a meeting around a rotary shaped table. It didn't seem quite appropriate to take a photo and I'm not sure anyone would have understood.

Then saw this (below) when on the metro. Apologies for the blurriness it was on the train after a couple of drinks.

That's the cool/important part of the rotor shape that it's the same 'diameter' from side to side at any point (when the line passes through the rotor centre, of course) so you'll all notice the frame doesn't move up or down while travelling.
Next thing on the list of things to build..

edit: oops, practically the same thing is said on the video description.

Then a scrolled to the later pictures.

OK I'll bite. I thought I just bought a car. Have I somehow unwittingly become something akin to the Illuminati? The signs are left everywhere. Well in garden centres.
