Haha. So nothing too difficult then.
Thanks. Would anyone be interested in some photos when I get it home?

"It would have been. After commission and taxes it's a bit painful".
If that had been in either of the forthcoming auctions over here £3,500 to £4,000, and that's pounds not euros.

Thanks for the information moonriver. I was thinking it would be around that figure when I bought it.
Always wanted one, but looks like I will have to sell it.

Hope it's all good when it arrives over here for you. If it is, sounds from replies here that you can keep for yourself and enjoy a while, then if you decide to sell would make a tidy sum - always a good position to be in.

Thanks. Never bought it to make money on it. Funny thing is its almost exactly as I remember it being when I last used one on the South coast when I was a kid. For all I know, it is the very one. I was also born in Camberwell, if I remember rightly they were made there. Small world.

Because I love these old working models. I've always wanted one.
I buy lots of stuff, not to make a profit.
I'll keep this for a while and sell it, and if I make a profit, great.
In 2011 I was using an old account: link to original enquiry.*

I am pleased to say that the Bollands
has arrived back uk and is now part of my collection and will hopefully be one of my arcades in 2019 after some restoration .
