Oh my days! I’m pretty close to ‘Squeeing!’ The Pink Atomic arrived and it is so much better than I had hoped. It’s largely immaculate it’s solidly built and the box is huge! And completely outrageous!

Pics to follow!

Come on Roger - now look what you've made Imi do ;). Being at work all day is not really a valid excuse.

Oh! Sorry! I had no idea that this thread would cause excitement! Let alone Imi’s awesome googling...

I’m taken aback by the size of it, and the pink and gold combo! It’s a fab pairing with the 500a!

Sadly it doesn’t have a second eyelet cam it does have an impressive range of them and no duplicates cams.

Wow! No wonder you're pleased. It's the ideal accessory for the Rocketeer. Much bigger than it looks in ebay photo isolation too.

It’s a real style piece! I was expecting it to be no bigger than a griest +box or a large compact but it really is big, nearly as long as the full sized machine.

The gold and beige device is cool too and again a lovely match. The little extra cam box is nice too and has all the correct cams. And is has plenty of my favourite keyhole cams too :)

Thanks for being enthusiastic too!

I’ll have to test it but tonight is hand sewing night again.,,
