Overall Impression

I found this book on ebay, and purchased it because the theme of all Australian models seemed interesting.

The animal models in this book are mostly not very appealing, but the Sydney Opera House and the slouch hat, are interesting and nicely done.

Each model is accompanied by short Informational text.

Not a "must have" book, but nice for the unique theme, and might be good for beginners.
