No not the drag car..

I was wondering if anyone has built an older 1/25th school bus. I've been toying with the idea for several years now.It would take some scratch building and casting,but I've done that before.

Thanks

Is this, by any chance, a modification of the S'cool Bus? I've been thinking about getting on simply to convert to a stock height school bus.

That's what I'm talking about!

I'm not sure what vintage to build. 50's 60's or 70's.

Must..think...some...more....

Tom, was this ever displayed around here?? OMG! This is too unique to pass up! I remember riding the 1:1 International buses! Please show this in detail!

Tom's International school bus is truly every bit a work of art!

Tom needs to post the other pics he has of that bus he built. To say it's awesome is a huge understatement!!!!!!! I have never seen a school bus built anywhere near the level of detail that Toms has. It belongs in a museum!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wish a kit or 2 of those were offered!!!

Not even Resin offers that International!!

I thought the 40's/50's Small buses were from Don Loomis.

I just love those old International school busses! I was a US military dependent in the 1960s-70s and those were the Army and Air Force busses we rode to school. The government must have bought a bunch of them because I saw the same ones in Turkey, Germany and Belgium. Here's a photo I found on the Internet of one with Euro plates on it. No doubt one that the US military left behind!

That is a museum piece!

I was looking at the other pictures and I saw the Ford C series garbage truck I want to do. He's already done it...

I like those resin busses! Tom, you have built some wonderful models. I too can remember the jarring rides and hard seats!

Toms bus is a work of art, no doubt about it. Completely first class.

I'm not Randy but I'm pretty sure it is.

Mine's not really a school bus, but it did start out as a S'cool Bus body.
