    Backstory:

    Won this ebay auction:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=6055271993&rd=1&sspagename=STRK:MEWN:IT&rd=1


    So, picked it all up yesterday, put things together, and came up with these:

    What I'm gonna do, is show 1 pic of each item, and put links to the rest of the pics.

    wow, that's a lot of shells, are you gonna actually go looking for all the pieces to complete them, or were more of them complete than is obvious from the pics? gotta say, I wasn't too impressed till I saw there was a flagg up in there. yowza! even without it's accessories that's pretty cool.

    I didn't want to read this thread because Joe fans are very deprived in Asia and yeah, I really envy you! $50 for all of that! I only glanced through the entire thread but did you win this over ebay?
