    I am a full-on Otaku: obssessive for Japanese general culture, especially Anime, videogames and eventually Japanese coaches and trains, mainly the Shinkansen.
    I definitely disconnected from the rest of the world in what concerns buses and coaches, including in my place, where I now look to a coach that used to be spectacular in a different way; basically I now look at them like 'ordinary' coaches, with not much interest.
    This is due to a phase I am passig right now, a change of pace I decided to adopt (in order to move forward and change for better, sometimes we must leave many things we used to like behind).
    Other interests beyond this are scale modeling and - sometimes - going to disco and playing football.
    Three of my everlasting dreams is to go live in Japan like a real full-on otaku, buy my favorite car and "moe-fy" it into a good itasha and even more difficult, the people to stop being apathetic to all the world's curses and do something to reverse it!!
    My biggest source of inspiration for my whole life - including my work, my hobby and my family and friends relationships - is my favorite character, Kashiwazaki Sena from the 「I Don't Have Many Friends/僕は友達が少ない」 Anime.

  1. New loads! First is a Setra S415 H of a local operator, Theytaz Excursions. Then comes a freshly (re)made Beulas Spica 12.7m of Taxi Romontois; beyond the 50cm extra length, this unit also has a front sensor. As usual, you are NOT allowed to either modify or post elsewhere (refer to the rules on my signature section below or request them if unable to see this section). Next work is not a bus, but rail stuff, therefore you know where to find them; I take advantage to say it's being operated on one of Switzerland's most scenic rail passes.
  2. Still can't understand what makes you say that. If you still think it was because of my supposed rudeness, then you understood it wrong altogether; I just explained that people here may or may not take requests, you just have to try, and maybe you get lucky.
  3. To finish the day, an existing company color scheme over a 'fantasy' length for the now popular Setra Top Class 500 (S519 HDH, 15m). Among the bus companies with which I developed and grew my interest on tourist and highway/express buses is Cardoso & Nelson (now renamed CN Voyages). They still display the models I gifted at their office. As usual, you are NOT allowed to either modify or post elsewhere (refer to the rules on my signature section below or request them if unable to see this section). They do have two Top Class vehicles, though both of the 400 Series - S417 HDH 'facelift' and S431 DT Euro VI - but I have been playing with the idea of using the newer 500 Series since some time already. I might try this on the Comfort Class range, perhaps one another day... ^^
  4. Not a first time making a German Police bus (Neoplan Cityliner N1215, generally used for transporting their musical band, was the first one), but rather a first time making one of their inmate (or prison) buses, a specifically configured Setra S415 UL. As usual, you are NOT allowed to either modify or post elsewhere (refer to the rules on my signature section below or request them if unable to see this section). These have also been seen on white/blue and dark green, but I don't think I'm making those anytime soon; they also opted for asking AWM to produce this exact set of colors too anyway. These inmate transporters are generally specifically configured buses, but they also come in the shape of equally configured trucks. I have been trying to find proper images of a Neoplan N316 Transliner they also have/had, but up until now there's not much to work with.
  5. Bad decision. What I told you was to simply keep making your requests and await for someone to respond. You make it sound like I said something against you or like I was rude to you, which was neither case; was only to inform you of how's happening here. But alas, that's your own decision...
  6. I think it's time you should realize something. Just because you made a request, it doesn't mean this is an 'automatic request service' as you might think. What happens is that someone may respond to your request, or nobody at all; in the latter case you seem to think someone may have started or has intentions on doing it, but said nothing. So please bear in mind that requests here may not be granted (immediately or definitely, doesn't really matter); rather wait until someone responds to your request(s), then you can check with that person via PM, instead of cluttering the thread over and over again with regards to that request. Thanks.
  7. Getting pretty fun around here, though still not as much as my Kashiwazaki Coaster and other Japanese models. ^^
  8. Here is a real and authentic representation of the Bus Sedunois (Wallis, Switzerland) three doors MAN Lion's City S. As usual, you are NOT allowed to either modify or post elsewhere (refer to the rules on my signature section below or request them if unable to see this section). It actually comes amidst the fact I started a temporary employment program which will last - unless a 'proper' job is acquired in the meantime - six months, with the last three to be probably spent on a different domain, probably toy repair and assembly or - if anyway possible - carpentry, or any other available domain I choose. The next weekend will be extended, with Monday being a religious holiday, so that makes me more valuable time to make other Bus Sedunois vehicles, particularly MB Citaro G Facelift and Volvo 7900 Hybrid, as well as three 'fantasies' (MB Citaro C2G and C2L, and a surprise Kashiwazaki Coaster tour bus).
  9. That's actually at ME you should ask that... What you want it for?
  10. TKK Group in Japan operates the Kashiwazaki highway, midi and minibuses, as well as taxi services. The Kashiwazaki Coaster「Vega」12m theater bus now wears those rather refreshing and flowing colors, and the result is pretty much satisfying. ^^ As usual, you are NOT allowed to either modify or post elsewhere (refer to the rules on my signature section below or request them if unable to see this section). Now it's time to get back at making the last ordered Beulas - a 12,8m Spica C school bus - then get some rest, for I just saw my stupid employment counselor decided I should go double the usual time of three months (hope I find a good job sooner, much sooner).
  11. In the end this thread is completely useless and should either be deleted itself or locked... If one would like to leave and the only way to do it is through Admin action, guess the best is PMing an Admin. You should know better. xD
  12. Again, that's something for the Transit Model Thread, not here. This thread is for PAPER trains.
  13. These are not for this thread. Your first reply is for here: BNSF Thread And the second is for here: Transit Model Thread Not that I am the 'thread police' or disguising as an 'unofficial admin', but the fact you repeatedly go off-topic - even if halfly - can cause your suspension; the next time will be an Admin just 'wondering' around this thread. Use the Search engine to post on the right thread. To any Admin, my apologies if I'm stepping on one's toes.
  14. The third chosen color scheme for the Beulas Glory 15m is Nordestina, a Portuguese company headquartered in Carrazeda de Ansiaes, which also makes frequent Portugal-Switzerland regular services. PRE-FACELIFT: FACELIFT: As usual, you are NOT allowed to either modify or post elsewhere (refer to the rules on my signature section below or request them if unable to see this section). They operate at least six units that I am aware of, all produced by Irmaos Mota. The company was founded in 1991, which means it will celebrate it's 30th Anniversary right next year, so I decided to 'raise the bar' and include their colors into the two Glory generations I developed. These models sport a 30 year anniversary graphic on the flanks towards the rear, an idea I believe the guys at Nordestina may enjoy. Will now deal with making an icebreaker papercraft - USCGC「MACKINAW」- then I will make the black/red/grey house colors next, again on the 15m platform.
  15. My Beulas customer ordered four 1/50 models to deliver as a gift to the Taxi Romontois staff, of which one was delivered right at the time he asked, then the second one was built since quite some time already; Spica C 12,2m, Aura 12,2m (pre-facelift), Mythos 13,2m ADA and Glory 13,2m. The Mythos was the first one (delivered), then the Glory was built, the Spica had been already made, but not yet printed to the demanded scale, and finally today I refabricated the Aura, as 1. my client has the original patterns, resized in resolution and painted at the Beulas offices, and 2. they don't have the new geometry front. As usual, you are NOT allowed to either modify or post elsewhere (refer to the rules on my signature section below or request them if unable to see this section). The client's idea of building the Taxi Romontois fleet at a larger scale actually stemmed from the fact I simply presented him the big scale Mythos, to which he was pleased and acquired it, in the meantime asking for the other three Beulas to be made at same scale. Two new paint schemes are envisaged for the Beulas Glory; one over the pre-facelift 15m model (FafeBus, Portugal) and another for the current model, also 15m (house colors).
