Also, research "Puffin" in Jack's forum; fertile text may be posted within this present topic thread.
Frank's main postings in another forum regarding the Puffin:

The game is then on: build something that seems close to Frank's seminal Puffin design and such would seem to be within the "Puffin Project." Recommended is a reading of all of Frank's notes concerning the Puffin project. Then builds are invited to be reported in detail.
