    Spot the deliberate mistakes!

    the model is in fact made by DJH, so yes, its is indeed a rip off. It also hopes the people buying it have the ability to solder an etched kit up without making a mess of it, and that they can apply a really good rendition of Doncaster green straight off. I doubt it very much somehow...

    "Nottingham, HST's , Asian's and a 'bomb scare'"
