5 inch gauge "Maid of Kent" with new CE-marked boiler - stock code 8068

A venerable 4-4-0 to LBSC's "Maid of Kent" design - it's one of my favourites of his, I used to own a black one many years ago. With seven inch driving wheels it has a very stately exhaust beat - the first time I saw one running at the club I fell for it!
This one is an older engine, in Midland Compound guise, part way through a stalled rebuild. There's a new CE-marked boiler fitted with regulator and stainless steel radiant superheaters.
The locomotive chassis is in one piece, tender has had the paint stripped from it - there is a box of miscellaneous parts and boiler fittings along with drawings.
