There are almost none here mate :S I'm with the exact same problem here. Import taxes and shipping is just killing me, so I end up spending close to double the US price for a project. I think there are such projects around, but it might take some searching. Maybe the YAHA, it's not a highend build at all but it's a great compact, fun and learning scheme to build. I'm planning on doing that myself one day soon.
