I think they look really good, I appreciate the slight issues, but I am still in, and appreciate the price drop and honesty!

It is yes, I still need to check them and work out the best option to deliver these.

Where are you based?

They're still available. I'm planning to purchase larger boxes and ship them assembled.

24x18x10" size boxes, pack of 20 is £25.24 that means ~ £1.3 extra + shipping cost on top of the price.

I can also just wrap it but they have to survive transit. Whatever your preference is. It would take some time, I need to do it one by one.

I received the bigger boxes today and answered few PMs. Shipping can start.

I add it rather here than write it down every time. I assemble the box, then wrap it with black cling film, than put it into the bigger one with some stuffing to keep it safe&secure, than wrap the whole thing again. 2 labels on the parcel and add some FRAGILE tape.

There are few more left yes.

However you might want to wait, I'll receive some poly insert samples next week made for the boxes. I haven't seen them yet but the main function is to hold the computer in the box securely not to have all the curves identical.

If those are good enough I'll order few pairs.

I received some poly inserts yesterday. These are not molds like originals but work with both original and repro boxes. They have room for the booklet and cardboard box with cables.
These are not molds as you can see they're made with hot wire and cnc.

Price to be confirmed.

In original discovery (stfm) box with cardboard box + booklet (Tandy version). Same size booklet as power pack has.

Looking good. Put me down for 2x to go with my 2x boxes. We'll have to arrange a date for me to pop over and collect.

I drove 4hrs to collect my boxes and poly inserts yesterday night. They are spot on. My falcon will sleep much better when not in use in its new house

Very cool to meet you too. It is impressive stuff. If you ever consider doing other consoles I'll have an Amiga A4000 box
