Cracking bus !
I have one in the stash that's earmarked for building sometime soon.
Anyone know why the driver only has one hand ?

Airfix 'Ole Bill' bus reissued now. Here's mine. Built oob. Only moan is the men are cast in 2 halves, front and back, very hard to get a good fit. Apart from that a very nice, large kit.

Here is my take on this great old kit it was not easy no locating pins basic instructions but I really enjoyed it . I have replaced the card board sides with thin balsa wood and it has given it a better look in my opinion. I have also only used the decals they have provided as to me they would have found it difficult to place writings on the top sections. The figures are to far go in the moulding process for me . I have brought some magic box int ww1 figures that will be incorporated into a diorama that I am constructing as i speak.
