Cool find, Rabu!


How much for ordering from the states?


I look forward to hearing your review of the article.


With postage it was around $15.. expensive, but worth every penny. I ordered it back in mid June and just got it yesterday. When I didn't get it by mid August I emailed them and they immediately emailed me back and sent another one... apparently the first one got stolen by some WWI fenatic working in a post office.. no doubt!

Rabu- Magazine issue aside.....your "new" sig logo is just terrific! IMHO





Thanks, CP, I just embeleshed an old engraving that I liked. I think it was an ad for one of the early aerial photographers.
