  1. Paperbus Thread

    Yep, the only downside is that I do not like using inwards opening doors because of how small they are. (At least I haven't gotten to the Flxible doors yet)
  2. Paperbus Thread

    So I don't have "masters" lying around, but I do have a few complete products 6202 - 2016 Gillig Low-Floor Advantage (Gillig #4, X293) 1706 - 2015 Gillig Low-Floor Advantage (Gillig #3, X292) 2600 - Now Retired 1996 NovaBus Classic (Prototype, X287) 3124 - 2005 Neoplan USA AN460 (Prototype, First Artic Completed, X289) 3024 - (Retired by the above) 1991 Ikarus 436.03 MA (Prototype, First Artic Started, X291) I no longer have any "templates" to follow since these are the templates! I took nothing from no one (except the reference pics that I used, which don't appear). These buses are all handmade, no prints were made, so they aren't 100% accurate (and to be honest, the bellows on the artics are TERRIBLE). Anytime I make a new bus (for better or for worse) I start from scratch. If anyone wants to follow, these buses are all exactly 1 inch (2.7 cm) wide, pretty much every window is 7/16" (1.1 cm) tall. I don't know how good these are in your eyes who make better, more accurate models that I do, but I try my best to do these by hand since we cannot afford a printer Whatever, I love making these it's so fun, well, except for this: Other than the Phantom it's great doing the research, working on it, and completing it!
  3. Port Authority of Allegheny County buses

    So here are some PAT updates from a Pittsburgh local: I cannot edit the wiki so if anyone sees this they can add these to it: East Liberty Division has retired buses 5439 and 5458 Repowered buses 5201, 5234, and 5329 are all retired and at Harmar 1508 was given to Ozark Regional Transit and finally, and most excitingly... http://triblive.com/local/allegheny/12020524-74/options-buses-officials There is a new Oakland-based BRT system in the planning stages that includes restricted bus lanes on either Fifth, Forbes, or both (one way), a new garage the buses will be based out of, and, most excitingly, and entire fleet of new CNG buses!
