Well, here's my new creation features London Transport's Bus and Taxi, it's almost a mini fig scale, not my usual scale in vehicles, though I prefer to build in miniland scale, any way hope to enjoy and like it, thank you for visiting my page.
About this creation
Transport in London:
London is the capital city of England. It is one of the major tourist destinations and a hub of global transportation. London public transport includes: London Underground (commonly known as the tube); London Buses; River Services; Docklands Light Railway; Croydon Tramlink; National Rail. Bus and rail networks in Britain are very well developed, offer frequent and efficient services and provide access to the rest of England. By the tube (London underground) and buses you can go to all London airports (Luton, Stansted, Gatwick, Heathrow). On every airport you can rent a car from car rental companies (cheap and luxury cars) and book a room in London hotels and hostels.
The Routemasters run every 15 minutes, every day between about 09:30 and 18:30 on part of the central London sections of routes 9 and 15.
The Routemasters have been repainted in the 1960s livery with the London Transport logo and original cream stripe along the side..
Some front side shots...
Rear side view(s).
The stairs: the way up to the 2nd floor...
The driver's door opens.
And to make the model more enjoyable; I just added an opening roof …
Here're the passengers! :0 some kind of wierd passengers in fact... Well I leave the comment for you ;)
And some random shots for the Taxi...
I tried my best to be as detailed as possible, everything's open, but not much for the interior.
A couple of family pictures ;)
Hope you liked it... See you soon with another MOC :)
Again there is proof that MOTD has a really good reason for existence. It is a nice moc, and, I would never have guessed it is one of your hand. A more classic building style, but is has a certain elegance about it also. Congrats on yet another well deserved MOTD!
i must say that this is the one of your mocs i like the most - its not your best moc but it moost certainly is the most enyoyable one. the taxi is one of the best minifig scaled cars i have ever seen, and the bus is not so bad either. in conclusion, id like to say:
4WZUM CH3K 0UT M1 STUF!!!!11!1111!!!1!!!1
Fantastic double decker London bus. You're done a great job on this. You also did a great job on the taxi, making it realistic as possible, like places where it should open in real life in a taxi. I really like both of them because its minifig size. This is also well presented, with the SNOT road and the station. Nice work. ~ Ghostman :)
I like it

WOW I LOVE IT, EXELLENT DETAIL!! Be sure to look at my mercedes bus!
I've made a model of a Routemaster and a Ford Crown Victoria NY cab myself /not uploaded here yet/, but they're nothing compared to these ones! Using a snot technique for the roof of the bus was such a great idea, well done! And the cab is absolutely PERFECT! Awesome creations... hopefully, Santa will get me half of the sets I've marked as "wanted" in brickset for next Christmas and I'll finally be able to build models as detailed as yours! Once again, great job dude, keep it up :] Will let you know when I upload my version of the Routemaster, so that you can check it out and tell me what you think :)
I like the cab best. It just looks so good, I had to count studs just to make sure it wasn't photoshopped down from 16wide or something. I am sure the bus is nice too, but it is a wierd looking contraption, if that's what they look like in real life. The road was clever, and the building was nice. Cool moc, and nice new homepage. -matthew-
Sorry I've missed this one (no internet for a few days) - Dude, I just can't believe it, each new MOC from you are better than the older ! I can't decide if I prefer the Taxi or the Bus. Would take both if it was sets. Happy new year !
Awesome transportation! I've always dreamed of riding on a double-decker in London... Hey, do you think you could send me instructions for the taxi? My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org - And I think you should make The Tube next! Keep up da good building!
Nice! By all means, a great MOC, but its not nearly as dazzling as your large scale stuff. Great details and functionality. I like the vig style too. Personally, I think the taxi could use some work, but I don't know what exactly look off to me. By the way, how's the secret project going? Any progress? Take care pal and happy new year! Peace - Patrick
Wow! Yo never fail to amaze me! This is superb! I love double-deckers and the London taxis are really cool! Also I love the display you made! Great SNOT work! You're such a good builder :O Keep it up! 10/5
This is SWEET man. I dont know what else to say but 'THIS IS GREAT'. I like that you 'finally' did a minifig size vehicle...ahaa... and hope u make more of them sizes too! Your one awesome car builder!! Peace >> RYE GUY :-)
Sweet! Looks just like the real thing. ( I've seen the real thing)
Have you ever done a Lamborghini Bugatti? You should. I think it would be awesome. Anyway, treat moc, can't wait to see what else is in store for '09-Tom
These are wonderful! : ) They look like Ralph S's work, or even Miniland creations at a Legoland park. You're now amazing at almost every scale! 9.5/10 (to get the last 0.5 you'd have to make the street look British! I.e correct road markings etc)
P.S: "frequent and efficient services and provide access to the rest of England" I was in London yesterday... who wrote that bit?!
