Used my wife's powershot for the first time to take the pics not a bad little camera with the right light.

Rat,

You are having some great score lately!

The Abel collection is just amazing, I was not aware there was that many models, I love the mat red.

Im speechless looking at the PK purple A2, If one day it needs a new home, let me know :poke:


I have been very lucky lately as well, but not much free time to share it.

Here is some Hint, please try to guess the spec of this monster:

Im in the process of gathering more informations, but it appear to be a unique prototype, Incan LVR + 12 led regulated out of 12v CR123 carrier.

More info to come soon.

The LVR is not functioning, what are your guess? shotky is dead?

Thanks

... a unique prototype ...

I believe the SF prototyping process usually involved making 2 units, at least as far as machining goes.
Don't know about the electronics side, where one-offs might be hand-made and/or assembled.

Economies Of Scale thing: once a machinist / CNC program has set-up, creating 2 (or 6) is about as easy as making 1.

Anything there's only 1 of, SF (probably) have unreleased copies in the archives.

[ OH to be allowed a 10-minute run around those stores with permission to fill a box - a LARGE box . . . . ]

Which would make it a "ribbed" Z32 on a L5 body/tail.

Yep, you are right. I got it confused with the M3 head (that´s the Z46) :ohgeez: which of course wouldn´t fit the L5 body without an adapter.
