It`s a paper model YOU have to supply the card.

Quite right Baloo,
But Tim should get MMI permission to copy and print onto light card before the Museum goes ahead and simply does it.
Its a simple process to scan and print, and in this instance see no reason why MMI would not go along with what Tim would like to do. But that's up to Barry.
