Alternatively, keep a 'saved search' on ebay....

Swampbug,

I once priced up what it would cost to do this model justice - after picking my self up off the floor I needed a stiff drink!

I hope you have checked it out?

I remember this model required massive investment which ultimately did not reward you.
Whilst it was impressive from a distance, the level of detail was somewhat lacking.
On the water it was near uncontrollable, If you do find a kit somewhere do not bother with the working crane.

DickyD is correct I do have a Seabex, and would not have another,
because I would have to sell my house to be able to afford a new one.....
Something in the vicinity of $1800.00 over here plus, so one can assume
about a thousand pound plus over there, good luck......... :} :}
