The biggest problem was the lack of drawings. I had to use photos and fuzzy stills from a YouTube video to get the measurements

The 210 looks great, I've always liked this as it use to operate around my neck of the woods.
How did you build it?

Two farish 150s  I started by removing the top lites from the glazing making sure the horizontal bar remained in place. I then backed the windows to the same depth with 5thou plasticard and used filler to infill the portions which were to have the aluminium vents some windows and a door had to be filled completely. I then cut a window halfway between the cab door and the middle window on the offside. The roof detail was that from an old Hst body shell as were the Louvres on the nearside. The toilet windows were cut to normal window size and the top bits filled as before. The ends are ultima/etched pixels 317  ends and the whe vents on the inner coach ends are archer louvred transfers. The centre coach was made from 2 body shells cut at the middle of a pair of sliding doors(care to keep it square across the roof) the seam was carefully filled. The ally vents at the top of the windows were from fox transfers (aluminium strip bus transfers)which were applied after painting and then the black lines to highlight the rubber door strips and the open ventilators were made from fox black lining . I hope that didnt get too muddled .
