Yep, that's a genuine Quorn casting kit in there.
I bought it in 1999 when I had a short job assignment in England. I had to lug this bugger through the Gatwick airport (London). Now, it really doesn't weight that much, but I didn't want to concentrate all of that weight in one place. So, I distributed the pieces in all of my baggage, both the checked and the carry on. I don't know if you have ever been through a London airport, but they have these armed guards walking around equipped with machine guns. When the x-ray spotted all of these odd shapes in my luggage, they got real interested. I expected it. But needless to say, I made it home all right.
After reading the Chadock book on how to build this little gem, I decided that I should practice on some less demanding projects first. But you know how that goes. You get started on one project, but then you need to make something else, and then lo and behold, the machine you planned on using needs "fixing". I'm sure that if i keep following this trend, I will end up out in the back yard bashing three rock together to originate a flat surface.
So, there it sits in its cardboard box.
