Paperbus Thread

Recommended Posts

After dragging it for so much time, I present you Yasaka Sunshine's Van Hool TX24 Astromega.

It is also the first of two real life models - wether more Japanese companies acquire these or not, only time will tell - but I also have plans for this particular double decker, including the two Nishi-Nihon JR variants, Hokkaido Bus and perhaps Kintetsu, Hiroden and a certain Willer Express livery specifically used in their current Aerokings.

As far as I understand, Yasaka has one, whereas Hato Bus reportedly has three, but until I talk to some friends on the other side of the globe, nothing is clear yet.

Anyway, enjoy! ^^

I didn't use fonts, I used the actual signage of the buses and photoshopped them onto the templates.

A new one, directly derived from the Beulas customer: one of three 13,7m long Spica C, to be commissioned this December primarily for use as school buses to the swiss canton of Ticino.

All three are now stored at the usual workshop awaiting their turn to be certified at the closest federal experts; two others for the same enterpreneur (Chiesa Bus SA), this time of a length of 12,2m are also stored by.

Patterns for the 12,2m will be made starting tomorrow.

These are the six Japanese highway buses to be done during tomorrow as well; they are all simple and quick to make.

If any of you have suggestions, bring them on, otherwise I go straight to another, already overdue job. ^^

Scratch two; one for the Beulas client and another of mine.

Starting from the Beulas Spica C 12.2m, which I finally learned that Chiesa Bus SA actually isn't operating these two 12m units, but the Post Bus itself.

That still leaves all five - 3x 13.7m and 2x 12.2m - to be operated within the same region and same primary purpose.

Something I did not mention since I presented the 13.7m model, is that I incorporated smoother edges (no black edges, but darkened adjacent color to mark the edges for easier cut-along); such methor will now be applied on future models for this customer.

Because it is a model that definitely won't make it into my private collection - same for the 13.7m version - I will only upload the patterns for the 1/50 scale product - single, 1/70 custom scale can still be uploaded on demand (by MYself only!).

Secondly and most interesting (at least for me), is this Hino Melpha 9, of Ayashi Kankou - again, part of a series of relatively quick-to-do paint jobs I currently have in store.

This is all for today; I still may be in good mood for one last paint job for today, but if it materializes, it won't certainly be made in just 1/2 hour. ^^;

As usual, be sure to read and abide by my rules (see on signature below).

One more treat, Kate Bus' Airport Limousine「20th Anniversary」model, specifically painted in reverse colors (bluish purple lines over white).

I may be doing the normal colors another time later.

The last one from last week's 'adventure list' is Toyama's Hino S'elega/Isuzu Gala 9M; perhaps the easiest of all has been left for last.

Not taking requests but what I can tell you is that it's already been done (at least the diesel-only version of this bus).

Just giving y'all a little preview of the Academy Bus Lines D60LF #2014. Almost finished the front portion, have the rear left, also need to fix windows and doors (correct for TransLink, but not for ABL) but I really need to study for my finals, so if anyone's interested in it, it'll be put on hold for now. Should be able to finish it by the end of next week though.

This is probably the easiest livery anyone can do, since you can get it by changing the colors of an existing Translink B-Line model to Rutgers University colors.

Does anyone have any pics of the rooftop of the XE40? I'm making a model for the NYCT XE40 and I just need the rooftop in order to complete it... Since there isn't a public XE40 model anywhere I'm doing the roof from scratch, and I need pics for referencing.

Hi all.

Great thread.

I was wondering if someone could make up blank templates for these two beautiful Australian Built coaches... 

 

below is a link to an album, because of max upload size of images in the thread.

Click here for imgur album of images

I once had an interest for a certain Australian coach, a three axle one with side windows curving down as they reached the front end.

That was several years ago, and now I dedicate my efforts to Japanese buses and coaches only 

Sorry if I cannot be of help. ^^;
