The mill at Granvin on which the building on the left hand end of Svanda was based had a VW Golf parked in front of it in the original photo. In fact the model was scaled using the Golf as a start point. One was needed to finish the scene. A rummage in Nigel's trouser pockets turned up the HO Wiking model. Fairly good mould, but a bit lacking in detail and colour. I dismantled and set to work with a paint brush highlighting trim, light clusters and turning the brown interior into the more likely grey and black. Half an hour turns a bland bit of plastic into something more characterful.
