The Chipperfield's Circus models has arrived, and a very pleasing addition it is too. It is the Land Rover as a public address vehicle to announce the arrival of the circus to town. Apart from the familiar red and blue colour scheme, and the provision of two loudspeakers, the model comes with two white metal clowns.

These figures will certainly make the display come to life, being delightful figures, carefully hand painted. Playing his familiar trumpet is a model representative of that famous 'musical' clown Charlie Cairoli, while about to drench anyone within reach with a bucket of water is a model representing one of the 'slapstick' greats, Professor Grimble. It is worth mentioning again that these figures are hand-painted, and look extremely effective. Shop here
