Moebius should do a GMC fishbowl bus. It's a classic.

One of those old rounded Flxble buses from the 50s would be cool.

Looks cool. I reckon another modern truck would have wider appeal even for casual modellers. The lonestar would have sold a bundle and the prostar will as well. A new mack or kenworth would be the go IMHO. Cheers Ben

I like the idea of them doing a fish bowl, but the Prevost looks amazing...The only thing is....Cost....As much as the bus Revell is doing, now is, I'm petrified at how much one of those would cost.... :unsure: Although the prices for the Lonestar are pretty reasonable for such a good model...Who knows....Maybe they'll be able to cut a deal and keep it affordable...

I have many fond memories of the Fishbowls from when I would go to Arlington, and later Watertown, and go places with my grandmother on the MBTA around greater Boston.

I remember around 1984-85, they started to be replaced by Flyers, which were Canadian buses. They simply did not have the same panache.

 

I'd buy at least one of those just to bring some happy memories back.

Another view with the partially-bare metal scheme.

I'd love to see a model of the GMC "FishBowl" or as we called them: "Silversides".

Put in many a mile driving these while employed at Santa Clara County Transit in the late 70's to early 80's

A model of a GMC "Scenic Cruiser" or more affectionally known as the "Blimp" would be nice, along with an old Trailways Silver Eagle. Drove these in 1973 and 1974 for YoungLife in Colorado.

Not a big market out there, but I think they would do OK
