Work has finally begun on the FW 2.0 HQ. It's been a long time coming and we've got a long road to travel, but nonetheless, ground has been broken and the site bog has been installed.
..... this is a drop tank from a Tornado fighter jet, and it came awfully close to being installed on the ceiling of the reception area of the new offices. Infact it was only Robs refrain of 'don't you think it might be just a little bit overpowering ....' that put the dampers on the idea and prevented the 'buy now' button on ebay from being pressed. Ross, Dave and Nat were certain that Rob was being a stick in the mud and couldn't see the artistic merit of such an awesome aerodynamic object flying across the ceiling of FW towers and so measurements were taken to show how it couldn't possibly be too overpowering. Unfortunately these measurements confirmed that one end would stick out the front door whilst the other end would span the reception area and continue into the kitchen. You'd also have to duck as you walked under it.
To get an idea of the size consider that it's 6.7m long when a large family car is around 4.5m in length. Also see how it dwarfs the pallette that it sits on. We're now looking for an Exocet for the ceiling - let us know if you have one kicking around.
