I would certainly have thought that the Dreyfuss would fall more squarely into the iconic category than say a Great Northern 4-8-4 or an SP 2-10-2.
I think that's the point I was making - thank you, Richard. And I don't think anyone expected 100 of them. Accucraft seems to need 25-50 firm orders before they begin production. Aster's business model, if that's what you are referencing with the "allotment" for the importer/dealer, is clearly out of line with the current market. Maybe that's why they are no longer in business . . . :-(
