Bought the other three mk1's today, second hand with no buffers (saves me cutting them all off) and a scratch on ones side paint (less to strip) will strip the shells and add the truss frames tonight (no pics sadly yet due to nackered laptop but will take some for later)

Does any one know if BHE take exhibition orders cause they are at Southampton at the end of the month I'm wondering maybe I could place an order to collect and pay on the day ensuring they have what I want?
Will have to give them a bell,,, I hate the fuss of mail order I'm a new school eshopper!

Hoping to have a goodish looking vep in a month or two, then find a layout nearby to take pics on,

Very nice work there. Any chance of closer up shots of the "faces"? :)
To an optimist, a glass is half-full.
To a pessimist, a glass is half-empty.
To an engineer, the glass is twice as big as necessary.
