Following on from the OS Giken FJ24 post from the other day I did a bit more snooping around on YAJ to see if there was any other FJ20-related stuff worth buying.

And man, was there ever!

These items cost money.

It’s been and gone and from all accounts was as successful as you would expect and that is, entirely so!  There’s many galleries to be seen and stories to be read, I’ll let you do all that on the RR site though.  I thought I’d share just a few of my favourite pictures seen thus far;
