Hi Druid :wave: no mate they were manufactured at Pleck Road in Walsall although I think a couple of prototypes were built by NEI over at Ettingshall before the company was sold off to the BM Group; the only FAI machines that were Italian made was the 251, the 211 and a duck that did not sell in big numbers; the mini-diggers I only found out recently were also Italian made but not by FAI they were made by Ygry.

Here is a rare beast for you a Hymac 380 only 51 of these built; sadly but not unexpectedly this one needs plenty of TLC, somebody has done a right old bodge of a cab door, these originally had the sliding cab door. :thumbup:
