A fellow had a sales stand at the NAMES show a number of years back and was selling these when they first came out. They had a show special price on them and although I build all of my own stuff I was sure tempted to buy one. The detailing on them is first rate and with all the peripherals, pumps, tanks etc. it makes a wonderful presentation. I'm sure you'll be very happy with this.

The fasteners are nicely to scale - a detail that makes this a real beauty. :thumbup:
