What a really well crafted model. Do you know where they got it from? It also sits nice and low which I suppose isn't too difficult with a paper model. A pair of scissors and a Pritt Stick and the job's a gooden.

I've asked them what their inspiration was for the model and I've given them the option of putting Absinthe's reg no on. They're going to change the faulty spelling of Danbury for me as well.

I tried making one of their Brazilian's, the last edition I think it was. Did my head in trying to put it all together. Certainly not Airfix and I gave up in the end.

But nice Absinthe model.

I think the inspiration is quite clear. How many other pale green AquaBays out there that have BRMs, a curved roof rack, spare on the back, dummy spare up front and colour coded trailer? Royalties!

It's a job for the Queen of Crafts, Chris (if I can stop her covering it in maps!)

I'm thinking of printing off 20 sets and getting my year 9's working on them tomorrow afternoon.  Smile

If you search through the models hh, there's one for the Last Edition.

PS the link is in my first post too.
