Included in each of the specially produced presentation packs will be not only the relevant model but also a special Royal Mail cover envelope complete with stamp, the subject matter of which corresponds with the model. Each pack will also include a limited edition certificate. Limited to just 1200 pieces these exclusive models are sure to become a sort after collectors item.
