Having seen Dougs tug in the flesh, so to speak, when he came up to Darlington & District MBC a couple fo years agao, I can honestly say it's one of the nicest models I've seen in a long time! It certainly is a monster, and I wouldn't want to carry it very far, but the workmanship is superb!

I hope you'll visit us again if you come over to England Doug?

Regards
Eddy
