Wonderland Models at Scottish Rugby

In 1995 Wonderland Models started attending Scotland's international rugby matches at Murrayfield Stadium, driving the kicking tee out onto the pitch. We featured on Scotland Today, who came in to talk to us about what became a famous fixture of Scottish rugby matches.


Many of you will also remember our Famous Grouse designed by Tom Burke. You can see his post about the creation of that famous vehicle here.
