If you look at the link that Martin posted you will see an image of the mouldings which are supplied white. Not a difficult build (!) but not exactly ARTR either. Ebay is 35 delivered not 25 which is the usual show price.

I have seen these, they look almost the same as the Pollux and are probably a reasonable replacement.

Certainly cheaper than the Pollux 2, but I think the original was about 30 including the motor with the geared reduction poss a bit more, only got mine 2nd hand so not sure what original price was..
Still as you say a good price.I have seen them running and you would be hard pressed to tell the difference.
