Enquiry re buses

Recommended Posts

Folks, I may have posted this before (can't remember) but I am interested in getting hold of a model of the type of bus that would have done the No. 10 route in the late seventies / early 80s, and done up in the (dreaded!) desert sand livery.

 

Is there anyone who would have one, or could advise me on the type, or point me in the direction of whoever might be able to supply one?

 

Possibly also whatever would have done the same route in the early 60s.

Mr. Poots has done kits of the D's (standard and Van Hool I believe) but I think they're long sold out. It would be worth giving him a shout or looking on EBay.

The standard D has not been released yet.

 

Apologies Tony, I thought he did them before. Am I right in thinking kits were available for them previously manufactured by somebody?

Jim is taking orders for the standard D at present.

 

There was a very limited run of a hand built metal model some time back.

Nice-looking model! Any details regarding prices and ordering information?

I'd be interested in a couple of those - I missed out on a lot of Jim's fantastic kits in the past

They really are superb kits. Very well designed with great detail, interiors, wheels, acetate etc. Though I'm primarily a train man, I've taken to getting a sample of each of his releases... someday I may even build them!

Did a few of these make it into the two-tone green of Dublin Bus?

 

They certainly did...
