Almost a year ago I moved out of the house I own (and pay for!) in to a little rented cottage just for me :-)

Because I live on my own now I can do whatever the frick I want with my lounge now and so I have!...I could be bigger, it could be flasher, but when you're paying for two houses you can't be too choosy lol. Anyway, I've filled it with the stuff I like! I've got more boxes and more stuff around the house but here's where I chill of an evening, hope you like it :-)

Thanks, definitely fun to have lots of stuff in my main room rather than tucked away, that way I get to appreciate them every day :-)

Yeh still have it...it's on the work bench...still. I fixed the always broken input selector switch with the awesome help of an esteemed member and had spent many man hours on it, but it then developed a weird noise so in disgust I put it to one side and left it there. I've got issues with all 3 imported US boxes so I've temporarily fallen out of love with them to be honest. However, this will end soon and I will crack on with them. It's a beautiful machine so will take pride of place soon no doubt :-)

Thanks, gotta couple of great condition 9191's...one of my favourite boxes as I love that they are just so classic looking. The shiny robot is a modified Scooter 2000 also known as an Emiglio...they were originally RC but I had no remote for this so modified it with LED lights, I've got a white one too :-)
