Insane price. I'd rather go and buy a mint REAL Hornby Dublo model, it would be significantly cheaper. Or maybe a "Deflector" Athol (factory repair using Duchess of Montrose body; extremely rare!).

I think he means a Duchess with smoke deflectors. The one 'for sale' is without any.

When Hornby Dublo made their model of Duchess of Athol in LMS livery it didn't have smoke deflectors. A very small number were later returned to the factory probably after suffering broken buffer beams but there were no Athol bodies left so a BR Duchess of Montrose body, which had smoke deflectors, was substituted and painted as Duchess of Athol in LMS livery. This model is known in collector circles as a Deflector Athol.

There are other official repairs done like this that are even rarer.
