Before anyone gets too excited, check out the last paragraph in the review ...
Sadly, it seems these items are no longer being sold, and the model MT012 isn't even on their website. I'm guessing the price was too high or the market was too small. But they're impressive pieces of portable storage design nonetheless.

I looked at the Facebook site and the last posting is Feb 2017. That doesn't augur well IMHO. Pity because these look really cleverly designed items. I can even see Angus sitting on an Intercity train building another Vickers Type C with one of these on the table! ;)

Ha! :D

I really should finish that. I don’t know why I have a habit of doing almost all the hard work on a kit and then just leaving it with only final assemblies to tackle. Very poor self control, clearly.

That possible lack of self-discipline is responsible for my Cabinet of Shame. :oops:

Really like that work station. How much was it?

I have one of these on order from HLJ. Costs about £38.00 but not portable in the same sense as the briefcase unit.

Are you planning on initiating the launch sequence for some ICBMs at all? That looks like the nuclear football as imagined by a mid-budget 80s action movie!

Looks like it doesn't it. Right down to the hand print/retina scanner.....
