bus

  • 27 November 2017

    Those who are sick and tired of my damn buses may skip this entry on the blog. The good news is I’ve just finished the Skoda/Jelcz familly buses by adding the final element – flexible buses used in Polish towns during 70ties. What a relief :)

    Recently I was away from 1:700 scale, doing some other projects, in much bigger scales. I was also travelling for quite a long time. Besides I am still lookong for a suitable and affordable place for my lab. Meantime I’ve finished a nice couple of English Double-deckers. The red one is from London, while the green beauty is from Liverpool. They are waiting [...]

  • What can I say My 3d model is based on AEC Regent III RT version of London bus with Weyman body. This particular model was built from 1938 up to late 50ties. It was used in many other cities on British Isles. The construction was almost identical to Leyland Titan. The 3d model is only a basic framework. After CNC milling I will [...]

  • It’s hard to say anything. Everything is in the pictures ;)

  • Models were shaped, assembled, grinded, moulded and casted. Shorter verision is painted in colours known from Bern (Switzerland), while the inspiration for the second variant was Saurer from the film “La Veuve Couderc” (1971). In the future I’ll try to do the full conversion with railings and ladder. The Saurers will be ready to order soon.

  • Today I have finised the longer and heavier variant of Saurer bus. It was used mainly for long distance trips or in bigger cities. The incoming set of Saurers will include both versions.

  • I decided to create a model of another legendary bus – Saurer 3BLDPL. Saurer engines, trucks and buses always had an opinion of being indestructables and easy to maintain. It is obvious that Rudolf Diesel who invented compression-ignition engine, and worked for Saurer, had a great technical influence in this company. That’s why, when in 30ties Poland started to search the license for [...]

  • Firstly i glue the models to the toothpick. It gives me the certitude the paint layers won’t be dameged by my fingers. Besides I have better access to all surfaces. I use soft brushes. I put at least two layers of well thinned acrylic paints. Than I wash and dry brush the whole model. Last but not least I cover the whole model [...]

  • The model is finished. Surprisingly the realistic shape of the roof was the most difficult part of the job. Only the fourth attempt was sucuccesful. Here are some pictures.

  • San (named after Sanok, the town in Poland where the bus factory was located) – It’s rather poorly designed bus from early 60ties. Although it was a bit obsolete on the other hand it was chip and that’s why very popular during next two decades. It had two main variants. To model the body I used the small pieces of 1mm plastic sheets [...]
