Very nice collection there Noel.I love those yellow school buses.I wanted to buy some but

are not for sale at the moment.

 

Hi, don't worry, the schoolbuses will return shortly. There were painting issues with the type of nylon plastic used in the original prints, and I am investigating something better. If I can get a better material, I would rather wait and offer that. Will have news posted here as soon as possible.

 

Many thanks for your interest and support.

Evening lads,

 

I've been working on some M class buses over the past few days,

I bought the kits of Jim Poots,-(thanks Jim)

Here are a few photos of the early stages of construction-and of course I'll post more as I go along,

The kits are simple to construct,

 

 

 

 

The kit-"out of the box"

 

 

 

 

 

Models undercoated and interior being painted,

These two will be finished in the Red/Orange expressway livery-my favourite.

I've a couple of these to do myself looking forward to seeing your finished models Noel. BTW Noel do you know what colour the seats were as in some pics they are red with a black rear and sides and in others they look to be brown any ideas

 

Hi Anthony' date='

I remember some of the expressway versions had maroon/red coloured seats,so I've done mine with red seats and cream head rests,

Other versions of the M class had a brown type seat,a bit of a mixture throughout the fleet,

 

 

 

 

A second coat of red/orange livery was applied earlier,and a few passengers added...
