I've been thinking about this for a while, so yesterday I bought a razor saw. %5BURL=http://s173.photobucket.com/user/geetee66/media/795F0EA4-3A13-43B9-A422-1DE7D3F6186B_zpspt6cpq30.jpg.html] I found some headlights in my parts box which I can shape to look a bit more like the original car: %5BURL=http://s173.photobucket.com/user/geetee66/media/06BA8DA5-7491-428C-8268-5DABFDB82F5B_zpsepdyx90w.jpg.html] Starting with a Revell London Taxi kit, I planned my cuts before I started: %5BURL=http://s173.photobucket.com/user/geetee66/media/96690F99-A7E0-43FE-90C4-14105C999D29_zps1zfhszdf.jpg.html] First, I cut away the centre section. As this part has 4 pillars, I'll use it as my reference point for lining up the front and rear sections. %5BURL=http://s173.photobucket.com/user/geetee66/media/572DFB2C-1FC8-4E32-A3A5-90E8B2821C18_zpsvkvujemf.jpg.html] Then epoxy some brass rod onto it as support, strength and to help alignment. The styrene rods are there to help gauge the inside height of the front and rear sections and to rest give support while gluing: %5BURL=http://s173.photobucket.com/user/geetee66/media/815810D3-89DC-4CC3-9882-8C8666486D4F_zpsleg3wapx.jpg.html] I won't remove the front or rear sections until the centre section pillars are glued. That way, I can use the adjacent edges as a guide for horizontal alignment 👍 I hope more pics soon thanks for looking comments/ advice appreciated
Hello all, I have completed my build up of the Revell of Germany London Bus. This is definitely a time consuming kit and not for the faint of heart. All-in-all it was a fun build bit it took me 6 1/2 months to complete and I am glad it is over. The whole thing is painted with acrylic paint. The body is cleared with Krylon Gloss clear. I detailed the engine with some parts from Pro-tech. I also made my own umbrellas, breifcase, sling shot, and magazines for the interior. I hope you enjoy. Thanks, Paul
