    Thats a nice one, the 3 rotor luftwaffemodel is my favorite, this one is nice to though with the rare external display. Nice... But lets see what it will go for. Its crazy how many Enigmas have surficed on e-bay these last months.
    Hopefully my homepage will be up soon so you can follow the process of making the Enigma...

    Hi,
    I am lucky enough to own 2 enigma machines which were liberated from the German's on the 9th of May 1945 here on the Island of Jersey, Channel Islands. Both are the standard 3 rotar machines. The chap who took them initially though they were typewriters. It was only when he got them home he realised there was no where for the paper to go. He put them in a cupboard in his attic where they stayed until I came along one day and liberated them myself. I was also lucky enough to get the German radio he had also got his hands on as well as a lot of other small items. I have just seen that a similar machine to mine was sold at Christies Auction 2 weeks ago. The machine they sold had replacement rotars and was expected to fetch between 50,000 and 60,000. The actual price realised was 133,250.00. That was totally amazing, but I was given my machines and therefore would not want or need to sell them. If you would like to see more of my collection then go to Home
    I am always looking for soldbuch or wehrpass as well as photo albums and other dokuments from German soldiers who were stationed in the Channel Islands [Kanalinseln] during the Occupation, if you have anything that you want to part with for my museum archive then please email me at damienhorn1@gmail.com

    Here's the box only, I it bought on Ebay UK a couple of years ago for the starting bid of 20, listed under WW1 military items, as a German Ammo box, no other bidders, just proves that there can be a lucky find on ebay occasionally.
    The seller had picked up the box in a house clearance and waxed it before putting it on ebay, I did ask ask reference the contents, but it was empty when they found it.
    Regards
    Gary

    Magnificent. Incredibly rare items. There is a cracking example at the "U-Boat Story" museum in Birkenhead (near Liverpool) in England. That's as close as I have got to one so far!

    Dont know if this will be of help, but if you google Enigma Nachbau there's a link that might help with a rebuild.
    Also if memory serves a german highschool published the CAD drawings to fabricate an M4.
