So, not my most revolutionary MOC ever, but it gets the job done...
At first I did the nose of this 7-wide bus in all yellow, but somehow it looked too modern, so I gave it these -prototypically correct- black fenders.
I donmt know if you can see it, but the transition from the 6-wide windscreen to the 7-wide roof is rather interresting! (Well, I think so, anyway...) Check it out here;
The missing blue arcs for the Scenicruiser also arrived, so hereīs a photo of the three "biguns" together; (All of them are 7-wide)
I agree with many of the others on the scale: itīs perfect for the figs. I really like those kind of buses, reminding me very much of some older movies... It just makes me think of the good old days, of an America that I would have loved to see and experience myself... BTW: The use of the transparent panels is nice- I want to use those myself in some sort of bus soon. Is it possible to neatly seat the minifigs inside, though? Just wondering... I feel like their arms would be difficult to arrange in those SNOTed panels. Best regards, Steffen
Very nice bus, indeed. A beautiful collection all in all. I know it maybe isn't what you had in mind while making these but they look very cute to me, all of those vehicles of yours. Something I'd want to just put on a shelf and observe every day.
Great addition to the set. Minifig scale can be a challenge - the figs aren't proportioned the same as people, so deciding on just the right scale can be tough. Nevertheless, I think this not only hits the scale dead on, but you've managed to capture some wonderful form and detail in such a small piece. Nicely done!
