I noticed yours has got a red channel display in it rather than the normal green one, possibly changed at some point. Rare though so who cares. Good luck with the auction ;)

Look what I have found.

I was looking at the case and noticed that the leather case/bag is there.

I will upload more photos when I get it.

I offered to put in an offer so long as she'd post just the case, but she wouldn't and wanted the whole thing collecting and out of the way so that was no good to me :(

I missed out on the mounting bracket (not the carry-handle) for one a couple of years back too as the seller took an off-ebay offer before the auction ended.

I had to arrange the delivery for this myself.
A whole £7 worth.
At less than a tenner I think this is a reasonable buy.
It's sods law when you watch something and to see it disappear.

When it arrives I will put up photos of it

Blimey, good price then as I would've put a tenner bid in just for the case.

If she'd have aaid she was willing to allow a courier to collect etc, I'd have bid on the whole thing just to get the case. It's her loss then financially for not being flexible or willing, but your gain mate ;)

Yeah, bung some pic's up when you get it mate.

I noticed it seemed to be "on" in the pic's, but not lighting up properly, but it could be something really simple to resolve. Fingers crossed Dave.

.
As you say that was her loss.

To be honest I thought I would have to pay more for it since they rarely turn up.

The rig side may not be switched on.......

I am going to look for a spare rig for it. Just in case.

I reread the review of this and it appeared to be sent to the magazine without instructions or information.

I don't think we will find a box for this or the manual but you never know.

It's possibly the super version of the 4e inside, but I can't be sure. The super had a green readout and a couple of differences component-wise including better filtering if my memory serves me correctly.
