A comment here by Mr Trackgang has also prompted some thought. While I currently own 2 Da's, and despite the fact that they are the one of the ugliest things ever to run in this country, my long term plans call for a phase 3 version. Hence when it was reported that Andrew Wells does not have many of these kits left, I was slightly concerned. Should I put some projects back a bit to buy a kit, only tom salt it away as its not on my medium term plans, or hopefully pick up one of the hoards of unmade ones in a couple of years time? That raises the further question of just how many unmade Da's are sitting in draws around the world, waiting to see the light of day?
I'm leaning towards the latter currently, simply because I would need to do some conversion work on the etch to convert it to a phase 3, and my brass soldering is not that crash hot. And I have that many other projects to direct/waste money on that I can't afford another at the moment.
