Hello Mark,

Thanks for the info on the weight difference! :D
Would you be able to sell the bottom part of the Antenna that is machined separate so I could make my own up with my own material?

Thanks
Lewis :D

I have recently ordered from Field of Armor the following items
6SI-GENT007A Antenna base - 20 dollars
6SI-GENT008B 2 meter Stab antenna with strap & wing nut - 23 dollars
FOA014-026R Kingtiger Escape hatch - 39,95 dollars
FOA014-028M Turret track holders - 19,95 dollars
Total price including postage to Germany 135,68 dollars. Paid by paypal 132,46 Euros.
I may get hit with import duty which could increase the total cost by another 30 Euros.
As a rough calculation you will need to be under 60 pounds sterling for antenna and base including postage to the EU to beat their price.

Hi Mark, it all depends what you want to fit to your tank and if you are happy with a hollow tube for the antenna.
The tapered ones certainly look a lot better.

I do indeed live in Germany but you are wrong that I will be charged with Zoll. Purchases under €150 are Zoll-free.
If the sender has marked the package with the price I paid, then I expect to be charged an import tax of 19%. Note Import-tax. Zoll would be extra on top but only applicable if the total price is greater than €150.
If it has been marked as a gift with value less than €22, then it could come through without me having to pay extra.
