You've still got a week to buy this machine. Only one meticulous owner.

Looks like the seller got the 'category' wrong:

Listed in category: Consumer Electronics > Radios: CB, Ham & Shortwave > Ham Radio > Accessories > Antennas

Not his most expensive lot. Look at the other stuff he's selling, from a Huey (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=4672&item=3076437328) to 104 miles of fibre-optic cable (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=4671&item=3077456687) :confused: This guy is ... a little eclectic in his collecting habits!

When I saw the thread title, I thought it meant a proper Hornet (de havilland). That would have been worth some cash!

Hey I bought it. Had to go an extra 40 grand and it was "as is"... no test ride around the block. Let me tell you it's a lemon. Burns oil and struggles to make M1.5. Somebody's caned the hell out of it. No wonder they were flogging it.

They had removed the M61 but it was still laying around so I grabbed it on the way out. Looking for gun shops that sell linked 20mm.

They threw in 50 miles of fibre-optic cable which I know will come in handy.
