Broken E-3/30 anyone for pupils' project

A student I know is doing a 'take apart' project and has done all of the cameras apart from the E-3 and E-5. I know I am not likely to get an E5 for them but if anyone has an e-3/30 that has given up the ghost for any reason then I will make a reasonable offer!

I'm sure I saw a broken E-3 on Ebay a couple of days ago.

I'm intrigued.. Does the "take apart" project also include a "put back together" section???

A repair manual would be very useful

I don't know the standard repair charge fis or an E-3, but it might give someone what it really a fully reconditioned camera at a decent price.

Looking at the image the seller posted, I could live with it. Images would just need cropping the faulty edge off.
