School Bus Anyone??

Recommended Posts

I just spent over an hour searching this sight for a School bus. I found very little, one S'Cool bus, one Johnny Lightning and one project that is just getting started. Anyone done a school bus other than these?

My plan is to use the Arii Isuzu Bonnet Bus and graft on a 65 Chevy truck nose. Not sure if I will go School Bus yellow or if I will make it onto a Hippy bus, but I was looking for some inspiration.

In a way, it will look like a stock version of the S'Cool Bus as it had a 65ish Chevy nose on it.

I would love to see any other school buses that have been done.

BTW, search brings up old school, high school, grad school, grade school, etc. Hundreds of pages or unrelated posts.

I love it, that hippy bus is great, just what I was thinking. I am torn between a hippy bus, stock old schoolie, or maybe shorten it and make a hod rod bus. We'll see.

I know the Bonnet bus is supposed to be 1/32 scale, but it is the right size when paired with an older truck in 1/25 scale. It works well as a small bus.

I don't think RMR has anything like that.  Most of there stuff is "older".  Here's the link to their site: Resin Model Ranch

This is sweet! If I was going to do this one I would use the "S'cool bus" body. I think it's a better look & probably a little less work.

Where did you get those pictures, the web site does not show but a few, and these are not there.

I found the photos when I did a Web search for "Resin Motor Replicas".  That's their old name.  The photos came up in a Yahoo! image search; but if you contact them, they might send you photos of what they have.

Yes, thanks. That is where I got the idea. I still think these are 1/32 or some odd ball in-between, not 1/25 like he said. But, to make a older smaller bus, they work great.
