There are quite a lot of advertising hoardings around the Selly Oak bridge, and although my model has moved things around, I want to include adverts to add a bit of colour to the scene. 

Wills have provided the first one for the hill. All I had to do was pluck a couple of adverts from the web, re-size them and spray with matt varnish to avoid them fading. Why this looks odd in the photo is a mystery, but they look fine in real life. 

I reckoned an APT would make sense, since this model is for Rapido who built the APT-E model, and since Brexit was apparently done and dusted on the day I printed them, something about visiting Johnny Foreigner for your holidays in an Austin Allegro looks nice on the other half of the board.

Love the optimism of "visiting Johnny Foreigner for your holidays in an Austin Allegro" - you'd be lucky to get past Oxford before fumbling for your AA box key.
