It's quite a tricky one. Once I had solved
the middle one, all 4 ones round the outside
take quite a while for me to solve.
You can use numbers from the outer 4 to
help solve the middle one too which helps.
42 mins the japanese reckon ?
They must be real experts, it took me more
than 4 hours of concentrated time to solve it
I've put a scan of it on my website if you'd like to see it
