it's so tempting isn't it. i'll probably get the cabinets in a week or two, it'll take a while to build a worth while display though. the astronaught is brilliant, get one.

Holy cow! The prices on these are quite suprising, for something you would see in jumble sales two to a penny ten twenty years ago, since starting to look at them I can't believe the value.
