Is that light blue overspray on the windows and tires?

 

No, it's dust!  :lol:

 

Should've cleaned it up first...

Really nice!

Apparently those open driver compartments weren't too bad in the winter. I've heard that you became so desensitized from the engine noise and vibration you didn't even notice the cold.

Thanks for the answers to the build difficulty question. It sounds like cabinet making!

Actually it is very much like that, only at a smaller scale. The wood pieces are joined with mortises and tenons, finger joints, etc. It's pretty amazing when you think of the engineering that goes into making the laser-cut pieces.

Very cool, Harry! That is a pretty small scale build for you but I suppose the overall size made up for it!

 

As for the open driver's compartment - It doesn't get as cold in winter in London as it does in the midwest! It doesn't get as hot either! At least it didn't until global warming! :D

Nice work Harry. A lot of fiddly details that came together real well. I didn't know such a kit existed. I'm guessing the side slats are a safety measure so man or beast won't get squashed in a crowded street.

Now that is different and very very cool. Thanks for sharing. I think it would be kinda neat to ride around in one of these.

This is an expensive kit... $400 MSRP. But I got it for a lot less, it was on sale for $220. Still not exactly cheap... but better than $400!

 

 

My wife says thats a rediculous amount to pay for a model..........I don't think she gets it.

And you wonder how many actually did before they came up with them!

You should see what I pay for some Pocher kits. This bus was a relative bargain!

Apparently you don't pay very close attention... I've posted tons of my models over the years. Cars, trucks, and a whole lot of "other" stuff.  ;)

ah, well, I just recently decided to be a little more active. Been a member for a bit, but didn't start doing stuff till a few months later. Look's like I'm going to look at some of your other stuff!
