    As found, I've now added the burner plate, key and chain.

    The burner key there is for the later 8R - the key for this model is the same as the one here

    Sorry if you knew that - maybe useful for others.

    Aye, the replacement parts came from Base-Camp as a birthday present from my daughter. I got sick of swapping parts from a 123 and just wanted to get the stove making flame for one of the photoshoots so I wasn't too fussed about originality at the time. I'm still not - it's an unconvincing performer... :roll:
