Must confess; I have quite a few. They range from the size of the one in the OP, Optimus 96 and British Monitor Touring up to the 2 pint camp stoves including a quite rare Coleman that served me well in Scouts.

I'm still off petrol stoves thanks to an MSR that went supernova on me and nearly set fire to a large bit of Ludlow.

Primus type stoves are just great designs that really haven't had to change much.

I'm more of a Coleman fan (550B), but the roar of a pressurised stove (of whatever make) is lovely.
I've used and value the Classic Camp Stoves site for fettling my Coleman...a small world!!!
