Weighty problem

In moments of tired and emotionalness ( brought on by various ales on top of
the flu) I was considering a landy I know of in a pals field as a project .
I was wondering what sort of weight a swb chassis comes in at.

LOL thanks Jon (and Alex :-) ) I was looking at my options I have a handy
trailer so that weight looks nice and feasable saves having to borrow my
merc from work to do the business.

Oh well, if that's how it's coming, expect it 3 days late and you'll
have to go to the nearest depot 30 miles away to collect it.

same time.....

Is that local times in both places? If so thats 30 1/2 hours for the
trip.

Dispatch time is 1320 Tokyo = 0420 UTC day 1
Arrival time is 1150 London = 1050 UTC day 2

24:00 - 04:20 + 10:50 = 30.5hrs (I think...).

Flying time from direct Toyko to London is around 12hrs leaving
18.5hrs to get the thing to and from airports etc. If the thing is
small enough to be carried on rather than checked that speeds things
up. There are always a few "courier" seats available for this sort of
small thing, or at least there were pre 9/11...

However did it *really* come from Japan or stock at a European or UK
base? The order may have been issued in Japan but these days a decent
stock system could dispatch from anywhere. A clever system would send
the nearest, a really clever system the quickest (which might not be
the nearest...)
