Very nice, Neil. Was the model seated at a 60-degree angle?

This is really strange. The Elinchrom mount components that I'm familiar with have 3 mounting holes spaced 120-degrees apart. The green line in this graphic is rotated 120-degrees from a line (red) drawn between the mount studs as they're currently positioned:

Clearly, reorienting the the mount by 120-degrees won't work. However, rotating the mount by 60-degrees will (blue line):

Could the 600RX and 500BXri have different mount components? I suppose it's possible.

Dave, there are three screws that are evenly spaced apart holding the mount to the body. That would mean that each is 120º apart from the others, no? So, to get the white mount index line where it's supposed to be (near the 7 o'clock position), the mount would need to be rotated 120º counter-clockwise, no? Or did I mess up the math? :confused:

Your math is right, Leo. The mount needs to be rotated -120º (yellow line):

Yes, that is correct. That's in the counter-clockwise direction, as I said in my previous posts. ;)

Looks clockwise to me.

Thats a pretty funny assembly mistake though, its like assembling a car with the side mirrors facing in front.

Oh! Try a rubber band fix!

Ok i should stop, my ABR & VML have done nothing wrong yet.

Well, I haven't been able to think clearly since you broke the news about your Para and Ringflash P. It's also adversely impacted my reading comprehension.

This could be down to me being stupid (and I hope it is)

The lugs that the speedrings hook onto inside the unit are in different places so regardless of how I orientate the rings within the SB the unit is always not square.

The 250 looks fine but the 500 is way off.

The hooks line up with the grey edge piping on both boxes. they are identical.

Here they are side by side

Thought I'd share an image from a rather uneventful group shoot earlier today. (It was a crap location)

Shot with Mola Setti powered by an Elinchrom Ranger RX - Camera Right and a bare speedlight at full power about 3 feet from the model for light.
