Bricklinked UCS 10179 for sale £700 delived (UK)

Well, I've finally finished my latest UCS 10179 and it's looking for a good home.  I did this as a project to keep me occupied this winter but I don't really have the space to display it.  I've advertised it on Ebay (link below) but I'd be happy to sell it to another Bricksetter for £700 including delivery in the UK.  There's lots of details and photos in the ad, but please feel free to PM me if you have any questions.  I'd be happy to send elsewhere, but it's likely to be very expensive to ship.

It cost me £625 to build, so I'm just looking to recover my costs, cover any Paypal feels and postage (Special Next Day, fully insured) and make a tiny profit....!  I've made several good trades here and on Eurobricks, and hopefully my Ebay feedback speaks for itself :-)

Cheers, Robin

    Looks lovely - how can you bear to part with it?!

    Thanks @drdavewatford

    I was tempted, but I promised myself that I'd sell it on as soon as I'd finished it.  Most of the fun for me is sourcing the parts at a reasonable cost, and it's kept me happily occupied for most of last winter!  I'll be happy to see it go to a good home :-)

    Hi Lobot, apart from the name plate and instructions, is everything the same as what the actual 10179 would be or are there replacement parts?

    Read the ebay description, there are quite a lot of substituted parts plus a reproduction dish.

    Couldn't part with mine - the bricklinking process really helped me get attached to it. For whoever buys this UCS set, it is an amazing build!

    Hi everyone, all PMs replied to! 

    I'm only interested in a cash deal at the moment, and it looks like postage outside of the UK/Europe would be prohibitive (around £150!).  I've used several replacement parts as stated in my Ebay advert, plus a few of the newer part/mold types, but hopefully that's reflected in the price :-)

    Cheers, Robin
