I brought my rare, Airfix, 1/32 Scale, Vauxhall Viva HA De Luxe, 1966 with bag from kit collect store in IPMS Nationals Champioship 1994 or 95. I'm not remember it. I has researched my Vauxhall brochure and my books. I'm employee of Vauxhall in Ellesmere Port, where is Viva production on here and my father works here on 1960's -70's. I have know it.

I made up scratchbuild the trims in interior, and I made up flash foils with frames, Bumpers and Wheels.

I was sprayed all gloss white with airbrush. and I was flat and polished all bodywork.
I has painted clear colour for tailight, and I has checked the details

Vauxhall Viva was supplied with Red, Black, White and Crimson red. and very few special colour with pearl blue, and
metallic dark blue without lacquer coat until 1990's. Vauxhall Viva were start to production on 1963 - 75, with three
generations Viva.

White Vauxhall Viva HA De Luxe, was displayed to showroom in Llangelloen Motor Museum, and Crimson Red Viva HA
was displayed in Vauxhall Heritage Centre trust in Luton.

I'm proud with my model Vauxhall Viva HA car, and I won my first class Winner to my Viva HA at Scottish Nationals Scale Model Show 1996 in Stirling. My father was drove this white Viva HA on 1965-67.
