I was gonna make the dash to Man until I discovered it was ex 40+42, seen many times :-(

Thanks for the comments guys. Really please with the Tamron 150-600 now I'm getting use to it. Only draw back for me so far in the minimum reach being 150. Still that's a good excuse to get another new lens. :biggrin:

Really?? You didn't go to see an incredibly rare Nigerian machine just because it's merely a repainted German one? Each to their own I guess.

Nice pics, a great catch, I'd have been there like a shot if it had been nearer. :up:

That's Frame spotters for you! They are a fickle bunch :wall:

I believe it returned to MAN after departure yesterday due to avionics malfunction. Presumably still there this morning.

Even if I collected frames/regs (gave up years ago), I'd have gone just to see the colour scheme.
