This stuff is excellent - I've just got hold of photos of number 5 btw so will put them up asap.

Awesome. If you could turn them into a PDF that would be great. 11 is also missing.

Hmm it's having trouble doing the upload, keeps saying:

An HTTP error 0 occurred. <br />/upload/js

The photos didn't come out great either, so I'll have another go tomorrow. Unfortunately the book I got number 5 from only goes up to 8!
