I know this is rather sacriligeous to say, and my apologies to William Sayer and his acolytes, but I reckon the A352 has better proportions than a D-Type.

There. It's been said. Let the flaming begin.

Craig

PS Chris, as getting a quote for shipping to Adelaide seems to be rather low down on your priorities (no offense intended), can you provide some dimensions and weights for an freighted up A352 with a flip front end so I can do some chasing from my end? I really am serious about buying one.

Hi Craig

Sorry that your shipping quote request has slipped under the pile of 1001 other things to do . I will get you weights (approx) and dimensions later today.

Regards Chris
