Not my thread or model sir....just posted the link as I found it interesting.

Here's a recent shot of the real one.

Old topic but some might find it interesting that the Mr Darby that Puffin had, then I think Mike had has now changed hands again - just brought it home although not sure it will be allowed to sit on the living room floor!

Going to give it a clean-up. I think it has the old Dumas gearbox in it - bit of a mix master when it is running.

I'll post a couple of photos shortly.

Is it the one that ended up with an unusual name?

Like Lady ________?

Hi Mike
That is the one - you sold it to him a few years ago. It has the old MCD speed controls, original Dumas gearbox/concrete mixer in it. Complete with battery, Specktrum radio. Fellow decided to part with a couple of boats - this one in particular a bit heavy to toss about!
