At least they will be worth some serious $ if you get them going.

How many do you think you have 100's?

Good luck

Thanks Christian,

For you.... I'de settle for some photos *hint hint*

Sexy are being difficult due to their size, I've got like 50 atm which I'm waiting for them to settle... just a waiting game I guess.....

Fantastic effort Paul. For anyone who has read the Peppermint Shrimp Book it is huge knowing the magnitude of difficulty in getting Redlines through.
Great Job.

PS: I would be interested in some too :)

Cheers,
Mike
