Well the Bound Doc is one of my Favorite designs,if you ignore the oversized
skirt it is THE coolest MA. I've alway wanted it but I couldn't dish out that
much for a b-club. I like original MS's and MA's and Bound Doc looks so
freakin cool but Syd Mead made it look like a floating Pyramid as opposed to
the original rounder skirt and though I like some Syd Mead redesigns (i.e.
Ifreat) he really overdoes the panel lines and he is too much of a 2D
designer. His ideas may have been good but I really wish he would stop by now,
in an interview with him he stated something like "If people don't like the
designs I would Hardly consider them successful" or something like that.

Syd's "improved" version:
