VIVA MODELS
An explanation of this page:
It is not really intended as a specs page, information will be appearing here sporadically to build up a (hopefully) adequate and factual description of all of the Viva ranges. Rather than do it now and get it all wrong, I'll be
adding bits to this as I go on. Should you have any suggestions as to what should be included, mail me at: vivaboy@yahoo.com, especially if you have any technical information you think may be of use.
