    Today's finds

    Hey Cats,

    Picked these up today to work on. Both are running but wildly inaccurate of course.

    The Raketa is pretty sexy for sure. However I have no idea what it says on it's case back can I get a translation please?

    The Raketa also came with it's original strap although delaminated and filthy disgusting it is intact with little to know cracks in the thick cow hide it's made from.

    Anyway on with the pics.
