Started a new master...

Recommended Posts

I'm working with a caster who has a pressure pot large enough for this project. It's 1/25 scale, hope it works out.

Very cool! Is there any chance that your Ford W series cabover cab will be available in resin?

I've been thinking about it. I'd have to finish the interior. I have it set up for tachographs in place of the main instruments.

So is this a city transit bus?

Yes COTA donated a bus to a museum in the Cincinnati area. Years ago I went down there and took hundreds of photos. Since I live in Columbus (Ohio), that's the specific setup I'm making.

That is going to be huge, in many ways!

Nice work Tom!

If you get it done, I would be interested in it with or without the interior. If you get it done, let me know! I like old square cabovers and yours looks great!

Looks like a great project. There’s a lot of interest in the fishbowl buses. I’d be interested in adding one to my stash.

Wow! I rode a many of them when I was a kid. DC Transit used them in the 1960 s. I have a 1/43 Dinky DC Transit bus and PMC Street car in my collection. I would sell off a few to get a fishbowl in 1/25 scale.

The November meeting for the Buckeye Scala Auto Club will be tomorrow night at the Hobby land store in the Northland Plaza. Meting starts at 7:00 pm. I think they would be interested in seeing the bus prototype you have built.

Well, I planned to drop by, but my son showed up, and my plans changed.  I'll have the bus parts at the Motor City NNL 15 this Sunday. I'll be hanging out at the Missing Link table.
