I think the maths is wrong, he has the decimal point in the wrong place, it should be 1.20, (including postage to anywhere in the world!) :lol:

The decimal point should be two places to the left.

I'm not so sure.... the PIKO N stuff is quite collectable now and it does look to be in quite good order. Im betting its going back to Germany

I was speaking as a Piko N collector. The only reason to buy Piko is if there isn't anything from another maker. The drive train is awful, the wheels are true pizza cutters and the bodies are massively out of scale.
