    Yes, beautiful place. I was working in Graz last year; if I had known I would have come to see your craft. When we went to Slovenia it was a bit further east - in the Kozjanski regijski park. I think we caused a little suspicion by crossing the border from Croatia on a tiny road instead of the motorway.

    Nice looking crafts But at the price they would want to be...



    I could buy 3 Rotax powered Turbo Hovers for the price of one Bufo I realise the beutiful artwork would take some time but its no Piccaso!

    At a minimum of 30,000 a piece I doubt they will have problems keeping up with production I do agree a very fun looking craft and looks a good finish and with the interest I wonder just how long it will be before a UK copy comes on the market

    lol

    Theoreticly yes... you can buy 3 turbo hovercrafts... or one BUFO... it all depends on how much mney you have... if money is not a question, decission is BUFO and some people have realy lot of money, and price is not always the most important term of decision - buy or not to buy...

    You just add the reason why price is high... poeple that will buy bufo will buy it for the reason of having bufo, if bufo would be cheap, it would affordable and some people would have interest in buying it just for the reason of copiing it... I know for one guys that buy english hovercraft - i Thinkg eagle from KM just for the reason of copiing it... now there are already 2 or 3 copies of that hovercraft in Austria and is used for some car shows... They wanted to buy from me MAD - I did not want to sell them (I know such a creaps imidietly), and now they contacting me for bufo... - not for sale for such bottom of society...



    Besides our main aim is to rent a bufo and have shows with it in our country, not a production... but if someone realy wants it... we can make it with no problem, 50 or more per year, but that as I said that is not the aim.



    Complete project and modelating process took 2500 working hours of work (3 people were working 3 - 4 monthes more than 12 hours a day), and we did not work so hard to sell now bufo for price of other commercial hovercrafts. we rather not to sell than sell for low price.





    If you guys are interested, I can present the complete project and proces of modelation in picture on this forum, I have all stapes of work creating BUFO model, mould and product on fotos...



    All secret of product like BUFO is about hard work...

    You really get what you pay for.



    Im sure all the other manufactuers will be worried as their craft are now looking very dated and plain, and anyone currently hiring out knows it is only a matter of time before they will need to upgrade their hovercraft.



    You have very high principles stick with them the only bad comments you will receive is from jealous competitors.



    I would love to see a full build guide for how you made them, not to copy and resell, just to use as a guide for my racing craft.



    Im sure a lot of other members would benefit aswell.
