  1. Hi everyone I know that this kit has already been built and is not as such 'work in progress' but I thought it may be more useful in this section for those who may be constructing the same model. Hopefully it will convince others that it is possible to find a way to light this kit and improve on my attempt. Regards Kevin
  2. Another one I am starting this year. I have has this in my stash for a considerable time. Just look at the dust... The box is suitably crammed with plastic: I love the way that Revell just calls it "London Bus". I wonder if it's a copyright thing? I am planning to do it as a refurbished version with the Scania engine. Not sure how accurate that is, but that's what I am planning. More to come soon... Cheers, Alan.
  3. hi and first i would like to welcome my self i have just finished the revell routemaster, have never done any modelling before so its not perfect but acceptable im currently making a 24th scale diarama and now the diorama got a little while to go before finished but getting there
  4. My next build is something of a departure for me - well actually if you know me at all you'd say that for most of my builds as I tend to build whatever takes my fancy and fires my imagination, be it a WWII aircraft, bar-armoured recce tank or piece of Sci-Fi ingenuity. However for this build I'm coming down to earth with a bump - or rather a "ding ding hold on tight please"! Back in the dim and distant past that was the 1970s I used to take the bus from my home village of Swanscombe in Kent to Gravesend to attend Gravesend School for Boys. The bus I invariably caught was a 480 whose route to
  5. Hi, This is just a bit of fun to show a project I completed back in 2012. The vehicle in question was build for the Bo'ness Fair, which is an annual festival held in the town. All primary school children take part and if selected for various roles within the retinue or procession, we the parents, usually have to either build an arch outside the house or build some sort of frontage / display in order to celebrate the participation. Full details of the fair can be found here http://www.thefairday.com/about.htm The theme in 2012, was the spirit of London 2012 and I decided to build a London b
  6. Hi For some reason I am having problems embedding pictures on this post so to see them as well as the WIP pictures and a video please click HERE and HERE Overall it was a little challenging at times but I found ways to get around any problems. The lights are mainly Warm White as this is how the lights in the real article was in the 1960's (no Halogen bulbs around then). The grill mesh is made from the anti spit grills found in any pound shops, though the scale may be a little out it looks ok from a distance. It is not perfect and if I bought the kit again I would do s
  7. Before I begin, I must thank Lindan who has appeared on this forum once or twice as he’d approached me to produce some custom transfers for his own build of the Revell bus. It was his build that inspired me to get myself the kit. I’ve not set out to be too faithful to any particular bus, but to build myself a model that I’ll enjoy building. Please excuse any technical inaccuracies, colour deviations or other ‘faults’. Let’s begin with the engine then. My preferred option was to go for the AEC Leyland engine rather than the Scania as I had better reference pictures that I’d taken whilst at th
  8. After receiving good advice about replacement engine grills for Revell's Routemaster bus, I figured it was time to pick the Britmodeller community's collective brain again! I've ordered some custom destination blinds, from fellow forumite 'wagoneer', but would also like to order some adverts for both the interior and exterior, suitable for the year 1978. The trouble is, I have no idea where to start looking for reference images or information. I've tried googling, but I always find it difficult coming up wih the right search terms to get the results I need. Does anyone have any ideas or sug
  9. Sorry! I posted in the wrong place. See In Progress.
  10. Hi all, I've recently aquired Revell's Routemaster kit, and I've been reading through some of efforts of modellers on these pages. I have a question though; what mesh should I get to replace the Routemaster's engine grill? I've read various methods used, like splatter guard mesh from Poundland and etched Mesh from Aber. What do people recommend that is still available (I can't find any splatter guards at Poundland)? Alternatively, what mesh from Aber should I get (a part number would be usefull, as I can't judge scale/sizes from online pictures that I've seen!)? Thanks in advance for any a
