Wow, that's a blast from the past! Hewson were responsible for one of my favourite ever Spectrum games, Quazatron. Will be interesting to see what they come up with now.

Ooh, that looks smashing! Curse you, though, because I now want one but I can't decide whether the stainless steel or brushed finish looks better.

My maths says that adds up to 691.07, not 907. Am I missing something? :)
