Hi Dave,
I was just saying to someone the other day that I was sure I asked you about a New AP5 and I should get on StarDot more often.

Well here I am and I see my name is on the list at the beginning of this thread (#18).

I am still very interested in buying one, either built or kit, its up to you, plus a case.
I can collect next time I'm over (end of May '18) or you can post it, but beware, I have moved since I got the AP6.

Right, I have several months of forum posts to get through.

Neil.

Mine too - I have just put it together and it looks great! The extra solidity really brings puts the finishing touch to the AP5. As Dave says, it was worth it.

One thing to look out for though - one of the M3 nuts wasn't an M3 nut! It was slightly taller than the others, and didn't fit. 1/8" BSW perhaps?

My kit also arrived safely - The case looks very nice indeed.

Hmmm! Sorry about that - They were taken from a new bag of M3 nuts from Rapid!
