Where would a person get this item and how much is the cost? I can't find any retailers that I am familiar with that stock this line.
Cheers,
Charles

Hi Charles

as written at the end of the review you can get it in North America via Linden Hill or Sprue Brothers (e.g.). It costs 9,50GBP at NeOmega did not check the other sites ... hope you understand that i cannot research prices for every country on the world, so I left that to the reader.

all the best

Steffen
P.S: @ J-L: many thanks. i think it is a good set. Of course it is not cheap especially considering that you have to turn the model to see anything of it, still I think it is worth the price.

Steffen,
Thanks for your quick reply. I know you can't add the costs as it varies worldwide.......for whatever reason, when I first read the review, I missed the supplier altogether! Call it too early Cali. f time, and lack of coffee
Thanks for the review.....this does look like a very nice after market kit

Cheers,
Charles
