Corgi once made a junior model of the Range Rover with horsebox, seen in the film Octopussy. A 1:43 model never existed, so Keesie25 made it.

The Universal Hobbies company made a range of models from James Bond. Keesie25 used their Range Rover and the Acrostar airplane for this project. The Range Rover, driven by Bianca, only got an extra tow hook. The plane, flown by Mr. Bond, was redone with movable wings. The horsebox is made out of SIX Corgi horseboxes, nr 102. They were all cut up, and fit together. The baseplate is made out of two complete bases, the side door reveals a control centre. The fake horseback lifts up, the rear door goes down, and the folded Acrostar comes out, then lowering it's wings, gaining speed and set into space, leaving the Cuban army astonished.
