After waiting and hoping for two years, the RADAR EYE finally arrives!

This was the first part I was planning to get when I first started this project two years ago. I soon realized that a radar eye in aluminium was the the stuff of myths and legends - only made when the earth, moon, uluru, Lars homestead and an old aussie grannie´s petunia collection aligned. The maker, David Shaw, apparently lives in an aluminium capsule buried in the australian desert... For a long time I doubted his existence - was he real? Some months ago he returned - Rise of the Shaw!! Builders all over the world have been ecstatic, frantically checking David's homepage for updates and availability. I was off-world on holiday when the part was released, but thanks to Edward going out of his way to reach me via Telex and Wampa-cries I managed to get on the list!

One thing is the availability of Davids immaculate parts - the Shaw experience has to be experienced... The man not only double-box his parts. He wraps them in tissue paper. This time he even made custom shiny shiny sticker with the club logo - LOLZ! David you are SO the man! Thank you very much for FINALLY doing the most iconic part of our litle friend :)
