Default Maplin mosfet problems

Hi all i have just built one of these using a genuine board and all the correct discrete transistors all available from rs, but i have a problem the amp works fine but the driver tr's get very hot in fact too hot to touch after about an hour of normal use the supply voltage = 50 0 50, quiescent current is set to 100ma and there is virtually no dc at the output. Any help appreciated B\c

what bias current passes the drivers in the quiescent state?
What heatsinks are fitted to the drivers?
Are the driver Collectors isolated from ground?
regards Andrew T.
