For Sale - Mini Cube Flightcases - £45

I have three of these smaller (almost) cube shaped cases to sell. Their external dimensions are 41 cm x 40 cm x 38 cm, a practical size which could squeeze conveniently into the back of a small car.

For sale - mini cube flight cases - £45

Branded as Unicase they are constructed from lightweight plywood covered with a hard wearing black textured plastic finish. They are currently in very presentable condition and ready to be put back into service.

The interior is lined with high density foam; should this is not be to your liking, you should be able to remove the foam with a sharp wallpaper scraper in a matter of minutes.

For sale - flight case suitable for laptop computers - £45

All cases have three plywood and aluminium divider pieces. The space between the dividers are 2  35cm x 10cm sections and one 35cm x 7cm section. The divider pieces are held in place with rivets, for those that want to utilise the maximum capacity of the cases it would be possible to drill out the rivets and remove the dividers.

There is a substantial hinged lid, it is held in place by two butterfly catches. There is a flip out carrying handle in the lid. There are ball protection ends on each corner.

Internal dividers could be removed for larger items

In summary, these are well made cases in good condition and are a practical and useful size. They are a great size for people who need to carry their kit in a hatchback and move items single handed.

This style of flight case is usually quite expensive and could cost from £120 upwards new. These are priced at £45 each, the price includes delivery within the UK. I can send to some European locations too, but please ask for a quote first as this could be quite a high sum.

If this scenario tickles your pickle then this Dungeon Master vintage PC game is for you.

For sale - Dungeon Master vintage PC game - £15

Wikipedia has the following to say about Dungeon Master...
In contrast to the traditional turn-based approach that was, in 1987, most common, Dungeon Master added real-time combat elements (akin to Active Time Battle).[8] Other factors in immersiveness were the use of sound effects to indicate when a creature was nearby, and (primitive) dynamic lighting. Abstract Dungeons and Dragons style experience points and levels were eschewed in favor of a system where the characters' skills were improved directly via using them. Dungeon Master was not the first game to introduce these features. Dungeons of Daggorath for the TRS-80 Color Computer first employed them in 1982. Dungeon Master was, however, responsible for popularizing these elements. Other features of Dungeon Master included allowing players to directly manipulate objects and the environment by clicking the mouse in the enlarged first-person view.[9] It also introduced some novel control methods including the spell casting system, which involved learning sequences of runes which represented the form and function of a spell's effect. For example, a fireball spell was created by mixing the fire symbol with the wing symbol. This kind of attention to detail and focus on the user interface was typical of the game and helped create an often captivating sense of craft and ingenuity.

For sale - NASCAR Racing vintage PC game - £15

Wikipedia has the following to say about NASCAR racing...
NASCAR Racing is a video game developed by Papyrus Design Group and published by Virgin for the PC. A PlayStation version was released in 1996 by Sierra On-Line.
NASCAR Racing was released in the fall of 1994 for DOS personal computers. It featured more than 25 of the 40 regular drivers in the 1994 NASCAR Winston Cup season. Notable absences included Dale Earnhardt (who would go on to win the Winston Cup that year), Bill Elliott, Dale Jarrett, Kyle Petty and Darrell Waltrip, although the latter's brother, Michael, was included.
The game let the player race with up to 38 other cars (32 on shorter tracks like Bristol and Martinsville) and it also offered multiplayer action via direct links (one computer connected to another via a LAN) and also through an online system owned by Papyrus called Hawaii.

The CD-ROM version of the game also offered a SVGA graphics mode which was accessible through the command prompt (by entering "nascar -h"), but it was too demanding for many of the computers of its age, mostly 486 and early Pentium PCs. hardware accelerated versions were later created and bundled with the Matrox Millennium and Diamond Edge 3D."

Wikipedia has the following to say about Jimmy White's 'Whirlwind' Snooker...
"Jimmy White's 'Whirlwind' Snooker is a computer game by veteran programmer Archer MacLean, released by Virgin Games in 1991for the Commodore Amiga, Atari ST and PC (later for the Sega Mega Drive). 'Whirlwind' Snooker is a highly realistic snooker simulator.

Although the game was not the first to simulate snooker (or pool) in 3D, it made full use of the processing power and graphics capabilities of 16-bit home computers and was praised for its then ground-breaking realism and easy-to-use interface. ACE said that the game was the closest thing to being on a real snooker table which existed at the time, and it could be used by a player to refine real-life snooker skills.[2]"

Sold - Monty Python's Flying Circus Vintage PC Game - £15

And now for something completely different :-) A bit like Marmite you are either going to love or hate this Monty Python's Flying Circus themed retro DOS game. The entire game is contained within a single 1.44 Mb diskette.

For sale - Monty Python's Flying Circus Game - £15

The box contains the original blue diskette and the user guide (which list the anti piracy passwords needed to start the game). Although the action in the gameplay is simple and relatively straightforward, the designers seem to have gone to great lengths to add Python-esque references wherever possible.

Monty Python references abound throughout this game

As Gumby makes his way through each level, he must collect cans of Spam to win a piece of his brain at the end. One mini-game challenges the player to contradict everything the on-screen character says in the style of the "Argument Clinic" sketch.

"This side-scrolling platform title is full of artwork, animations, and inside jokes from the popular British television series Monty Python's Flying Circus, which originally aired on the BBC in the early 1970s and enjoys continued popularity in syndication around the world. The player guides D.P Gumby through four "completely different" worlds, in search of parts of his missing brain. The game's graphic style is based on the cutout animations of Terry Gilliam and should be instantly familiar to fans of the television show and movies."
