Hi, Here are some photos of an Early (1940/50s?) Optimus 8 stove I have recently assembled. The steel case came from France, via my friend Tim. It was essentially fully stripped when I received it but there were traces of green paint, the colour of which I have tried to replicate. The internals were a gift from my friend Bill, and are actually the regulated Optimus 8R-type burner: The paint is heat-resistant type (to around 200 deg. C), which I am trying out. The colour is British Racing Green. Best Regards, Kerophile.
