1910 bus.

Postby arni » Tue Jan 09, 2018 7:49 pm

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

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

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

So may do it as a scrapper/derelect.

May go for this as a sort of truck..

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

Image

Along with the original toeboard/floor.
Image

In the box was an original tube of Airfix glue!
Image

Wheels sorted.
Image

Controls were all there.
