Arvo Brothers Akira bike model - questions for those who've built it.
I'm deeply considering embarking on the journey to build this fantastic model. For those lucky few who have bought the book** and built the model, would you mind answering my few questions please?
1. I know there are some rare/expensive parts. Are there any of these which are not viewable externally and could be replaced by different coloured, cheaper parts? I'm mainly thinking of the x-pod lids. I believe the model requires 6, but I can see only four on the photos.
2. Would anyone be willing to sell their copy of the book? **The Brothers have sold out of the first print, and have no plans (yet) to do another. They also didn't want to release a PDF/electronic version.
3. If I'm successful in collecting all the parts would anyone be willing to loan me their copy so I can follow the instructions? I'm in Houston Texas. I'd pay for postage both ways.
