Does this count or will I be banned as it's "hot fog"

Surprise present from Mrs Robo, I had a couple as a kid that my uncle built, this will give me something to play with when inclement weather (nothing else at present) stops me getting out to play with the real engines.

Nice one Mrs Robo!
When I was clearing my dad's house after he died I found a little Mamod that I was given as a kid.
Straight to the shed for fettling. Half hours restoration and happy memories.
