This is a reworking of the earlier version. The colour is now predominantly silver with blue accents. A number of changes have been made to reduce production costs. The main change is the use of a tinplate upper body and grey plastic base. Less obvious is the reduction of the number of rooms from five to four.

The station has a two part antenna: a lower grey plastic solar panel and an elaborate red two-armed antenna.
