Well here she is.
    Columbus XCR tubes
    44mm head tube
    1.76kg
    Pearl White with polished graphics

Originally the plan was full Super Record RS with Fizik alloy bars & stem and an R1 post. But now that the frame is in my hands I can't help thinking that a more retro flip would work as well and not result in my bankruptcy!

So the modified spec is as follows
    Record 11 Speed Gearing (2009 mechs & 2011 Ergos
    PMP Chainset & Ti BB
    Record Silver Callipers
    PMP Polished Ti post
    Deda Zero 100 Dark Metal Bars & Stem
    Cinelli Caleido BlackTape

Wheels will be both tubs & clinchers, Nemesis on Record 10 Silver Hubs and FIR SC170 on same.

Any thoughts?

Nice frame. I also like the build list, particularly the PMP stuff. I have PMP chainrings on one of my builds that I had hi-polished and they look great. Looking forward to seeing this built up.

That's actual weight. Fork is a Columbus Grammy so shouldn't be too porky once built. We'll see!

Nice frame! Dig the polished graphics but the headtube misses a badge instead of the Condor logo!

I like steel bikes with a badge

Idea: Image

PS/ XCR might be too modern for a badge, and it adds weight!

It looks a little different that the Acciaio Stainless. Is it a sort of custom stainless Super Acciaio?

It isn't a stock Acciaio Stainless. The regular version has a normal 1 1/8" straight head tube and uses a Columbus Minimal fork. This has not only a 44mm head tube to accommodate the tapered fork, but also has a slightly larger diameter down tube as well. So it's like a Super Acciaio Stainless.

I'm not so sure on this frame. Also I didn't want to take a hit on weight in places other than the frame. Grammy comes in at 305g uncut, FEL is 350 claimed.

Well, the headset should arrive today, so I hop to be able to build here up very soon. Might have to compromise on the cockpit initially until I have sourced the appropriate parts. Zero 100 Dark Metal Polished bars & seat posts seem to be very thin on the ground. I can find Supernatural bars as well as the Newton Anatomics, but 42cm Zero 100s are like hens teeth. Anyone have any??
