Our models are one the way...(two blondes, a brunette and a redhead).

Dino sent the box yesterday so I'm expecting this to arrive in a couple of days.

The costs have worked out a bit more than anticipated.
It was 2000 yen each plus 5% tax, and we allowed 5000 yen for carriage from Japan. I transferred 17600 and paid all the bank charges at my end and Dinos, which came to £31 ( yeah, I know!)

However, It cost Dino a bit more in carriage, another 1500 yen, so I've promised him a tenner in the post.

So, they work out at £22.62 each. Postage in the UK will be £1.58 makes a total £24.20.

However, I'll be seeing Ross and Dave at the Banzai Bash so I'll bring yours then. That just leaves Stu and Rob.

I've sent you both a pm so you can phone me for address details, unless you're going to Banzai as well?

The models have arrived safely this afternoon, so I'll be taking some down to Banzai.

Still waiting two cheques from Rob and Stu?

Dave, my man in the local model shop says there's a company who make accessories for these models, including shiny alloy wheels. I've asked for a catalogue.

Sorry no exhausts, intercoolers or turbos, but with a bit of patience and an old washing-up bottle you can make an exhaust like this ( sorry...crap photo)

Oh for God's sake, Kris...don't let Dick Wiggler see it or he'll never shut up.

Dave..did you want 4 pot or 6 pot?.......Ah, just paint them gold and nobody will know.

Kristofer, I was in Gothenburg last year, and paid a visit to some buddies of mine in Lysekils, about 11 swedish miles north. We own a big herring factory there. Very beautiful country and I was very impressed. The seafood is really good.
Sadly, there are no porn shops in Gothenburg.

A word of caution

Don't try to spray the bodywork black. I have tried at least three different black sprays and it terrible. It just dosn't seem to go flat. Its ok on smaller bits like underneath.
Metallic sprays are pretty good
