Chinese Bus & Coach Dissasembly then repaint.
« on: April 04, 2018, 04:47:14 pm »
Found these on a random website and was brave enough to take a risk on them.
They came in a blister pack of 3 buses and 3 coaches each in a different colour. And have metal bodies.



The wheels of the bus clip on and remove easy. The base was on tight and was able to pull down on the rear bumper and walk along a thin screwdriver until the peg let go was in super tight. The window came out easy in one bit.



The coach wheels are the exact same and come off easy. The body was tougher to remove as there's no bumpers to give you a head start but the plastic is fairly flexible and there's a hidden ridge that you can slowly pry with a driver. I haven't got the window out yet as its flush into the front of the body and tight in. Will update post as I progress.
