See if you can buy the chassis in the UK/EU, that's the heavy part (i.e.
costs the most to ship). You could then buy cards in the US, and have them
sent to you trans-Atlantic; being light, they won't cost much to send. (I
will help, if a seller won't ship internationally - I can also test the cards
to make sure they are working before dispatching them.)
11/73 CPU cards come up regularly for not too much (I just bought one for
$46), and memory, etc can also be had for not too much. What do you want to
do about mass storage? That's going to be the hard part, IMO.
