That really is one of the great classic sets. The flags are one of the best parts too!

Lovely job! All the stickers too- and the box! Wow!

It's soooooooooo gorgeous. Always had a soft spot for it (duh, yellow!) - we used to gawk at it on a booklet :love:
(mine was shown in the PROCESS - but the stickers have seen better days, even if never used, I think)

Recently sold on eBay for between £7 and £40 (or more if you want MISB!), not too silly money (sell a few more zoo parts, Raven? ;) ). Can I stretch a point and include it in my collection of PM camper vans?
