    A very nice stove Motoshi, it looks to be a very close relative of the No11, even the green paint is the same shade.

    Beautiful! I wonder why they stopped making the pan supports that big.

    because they probably saved a fractional amount of money... Same as today. One tomato less in your salad equals 200K at the end of the year and the bottom line for an airline.

    Very nice stove Motoshi! You always seem to have the most unusual stoves! :content:

    Nice stove. The 111 stove in all of it models has to be one of my favorite stoves. Even if its to big to pack for a solo trip, it makes a great group stove and packs very nicely in the motorcycle sadle bags. thanks for the pics

    Ohio gozimasta Motishisan .
    Black control knob spindle is shorter than 'standard' 111 yet much longer than the 11 (same black profile) . 1295809771-PICT3959.JPG
    Here's the ongoing attempt at timeline of 111's
    Black knob crossdrilled in 2 places on the control spindle.
