An appropriate day and they nearly missed the bus - as it's the last day of bendy bus services in London. I wonder how long it will take them to produce one in 1:148 scale.  :evil:

I used to drive these bendy buses in Bath - great fun !
These are much better than the rubbish they used in london, the engine is under the floor in the front section and the 'trailer' has rear wheel steering - a test of a real driver is to reverse these !

As a matter of fact, yes the bus does bend. There is a design fault on the 'hinge' which allows one part of the body to drop from alignment, and I have no idea how I could turn this into a resin moulding.................................

The original London Country "Superbus" Metro-Scanias from the Stevenage of my youth.

Some of the early dual-doored Leyland Nationals also appeared in this livery, with SB branding applied to other SV-based buses.
