It looks like Herpa cashing in to me... not sure what the point of fictional schemes are and especially stuff like that...

Each to there own I guess...

I'm not sure what I want to smash up with a baseball bat first, the Coca-Cola truck or this!

Pictures speak louder than words :-)////)

Maybe as a forum we should push a model company to produce a 'BOB' model, in the state she retired in.

LOL, sorry Andy but this thread has given me a good giggle :lol:

You buy whatever makes you happy and if you like it, get it! I do love the VC10 in black, as per the primer black ones but this one just looks like a VC10 has crashed into a JPS Ferrari and then hurtled into the festive aisle of poundland :-)////)

I have emailed Hannants about some Anniversary BOB decals for the 1:144. If I hear back I'll let you know.
