    A clone of the Optimus 8R.

    Of note:

    Lid folds back flat to use larger pots.

    Lid can be removed easily to be used as a pot like the Optimus 99.
    Lid interior is coated / painted - so not sure I would want to use it as a pot though.

    Windscreen around the pot supports.

    Tank size compares well with my Optimus 99 and the tank cap interchanged without problem with my Optimus 99 tank cap.

    Other than the tank and burner assembly - all parts are steel.

    Interesting interpretation of the 8R. I've seen that type of pierced windscreen on an 8R clone before, but can't recall where in the Reference Gallery it was - maybe a Korean one.

    Add - not Korean, more obviously a match than that - @Tony Press' Taiwan 8R clone!

    It is nice to see a mint one of these 8R cones.
    The windscreen and removable lid are very innovative and useful. So is the cover for the control key.
