Fujimi Auster GT-E A10

I found, today, on ebay, a Fujimi Auster GT-E kit. Obviously a very old and discontinued model, the seller was asking $158 plus ridiculous shipping cost. I was hoping someone on here would have a lead on one that is not so proud of the kit.

I also wanted to give one of you less financially challenged people a chance to get it. It isn't mine, if it were, I wouldn't be selling it, I would be turning it into a '80 Datsun 510 Wagon.

Here's the link to the ebay auction. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/NISSAN-AUSTER-GT-E-1-24-MODEL-KIT-FUJIMI-JAPAN-/371162549071?pt=Model_Kit_US&hash=item566b030b4f)

again this isn't mine, I just hope one of you can get it and do some of your wonderful magic.

There is a Violet coupe kit on Yahoo Japan, and the seller is asking 7800 yen (which is about 70 USD), so I'd rather get that, instead of the Auster for $158.
The kit seems like a motorized toy, so it'll require advanced set of skills to turn it into a static replica, but it'd be challenging and fun.
Old kits that are reboxed by Doyusya and Arii can give that kind of joy (pain?), and their kits are relatively easier to find.

The shipping cost is reasonable for international express package from Japan.

Nissan Violet on Yahoo japan, I'll check it out.

I don't really know if I like my 510 enough to spend $80 for a car to cut up.
