1910 bus.
Posted by mini man on Tuesday, January 09, 2018 1:48 PM

Starting a 1910 bus,it is incomplete - have one built and one in the stash,

 

This box is ancient,it has staples holding the box together and the (non) decals - they are just a sheet of paper!

 

Old,Airfix have not used red in donkeys ages..

 

So may do it as a scrapper/derelect.

Thanks Mark.

Got the chassis primed and started on the tyres.

 

Got a selection of body parts mostly upper deck.

 

 

May go for this as a sort of truck..

No they are DONK wheels.Sigh the only 32nd engine Ihave is a Triumph Herald unit!! Laugh

 

Doing this is a bit like scrapheap challenge! Got a 'grille' on the front (where else?)

 

 

Along with the original toeboard/floor.

 

In the box was an original tube of Airfix glue!

 

Wheels sorted.

 

Controls were all there.
