What took you so long?
It's fun to see that stove. I bought one (marketed under a different brand and with a different valve knob) 15 years ago in Chile. It's a nice solid stove and I like it, but it has a big metal plate under the burner and it weighs a ton. It does car camping duty for me nowadays.
You can try and impress your friends by learning to flip open or close all four of the pot holder arms with one quick flip. :-)
