Scale Model A Classes

There are several model A Classes on the market - some better than others. The Cararama ones appear to be the most accurate except that the window near the side mirrors is missing ie it's a solid panel.

Several plastic 3.5mm/foot HO scale models are made by a couple of German manufactuers including Viking. These are the most accuarte but are poor value, as well as being the wrong scale for UK model railways. Also being made from plastic they lack the "feel good factor".
