This was the brainchild of George Turnbull (austin morris MD) one of the Leyland men responsible for the Marina. Hyundai employed him to create their first passenger car 'Pony' and to build the factory in which it was made, it was engineered by ex leyland staff without the management mess that came with it. They had a marina on site and wanted to create the car more in line with what they intended to build at the marinas birth, whilst bettering refinement etc, there's a documentary on YouTube about it. Nice kit I've just bought a revell Bronco and an Airfix Model T. Andy 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
