I checked the site, but there is no picture to go with it :~(

<snip snip snip a lot>
The initial cost was for me also a reason not to start with FP
Express. Development cost are high as we all know. Since this is
a hobby and collecting the stuff is already *not* cheap and I'm
on a tight budget, were all good reasons to try doing it myself.
