They're the original colours on my bus, I've rarely seen them looking this nice on an 11 window so now I'm becoming tempted to put it back to original when I get to paint.

I am also now sold....on the idea of keeping to these colours now for Sherry the topless Devonette...
Just like it ce out of the factory..

Lovely bus Nugget...you should be very proud...

Stock is the only way Pal , attention to detail is amazing and i think this is going to be one of the best SO23 on this side of the pond.



Love it .....

Been hard at it all week end, some serious hours gone into this bus, interior 99% done just got water tank to put back and side tent and poles to sort. Here's a few pictures of the finished result of the inside of the bus

Absolutely stunning! 8)

I very much doubt they were of that standard of finish when they left the factory! Looks incredible! :)
