One more then, pre mud.
Pernilla is waiting on Nigel's go-ahead to ship them as she wanted to discuss the lining first. I volunteerd to collect mine (I'm London based) and post some pics so the lining wouldn't come as a surprize.
Snowdon Zug Out of the box. I planned on re-colouring mine from the start, same as i did with my normal Snowdons. Very dark brown.
