Not in service or max shuttle or garage

 

as promised, i did one of each... including the original, i modified darius's trimet bus and added the battery pack, wasn't easy, i hope the letters are ok, was kinda sloppy, but i also referenced to where it fits the bus, let me know how it looks when you build it and if it needs any adjustments...

 

here they are....

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.

I think I have a rooftop shot of a CTA XE40. I'll try to find it.

i finally found a New Flyer XD60 Xcelsior in a png format on google, so i finally painted myself a VINE bus...

the body blank, with no fleet number or designator sign on..

*sigh...

with all the hype of these buses...

...Miway 2017 Nova Bus LFS & YRT 2005 Van Hool AG300 (ex VIVA), YRTs first Conventional Artics, both set to hit the streets at some point in the coming months.

As always, left the original credits where credit is due.

Hey everyone, hope you're all enjoying the holidays! Here's some things I've made / been working on recently...

NYC MTA  2011 Novabus LFS #8075 IMG_8454.thumb.JPG.b94fb484244652ed1f6fbcd52f113416.JPG

NYC MTA 2018 New Flyer XN60 #1016 IMG_8453.thumb.JPG.0f92aca6e7d71ef01ea5a01e88601784.JPG

New York University / Academy Bus 2010 New Flyer XDE40 #2192 (in honor of me getting admitted into NYU) IMG_8451.thumb.JPG.660fee877d95f4bdba94600172bd40a4.JPG

And some WIPs:

NYC MTA 2017 New Flyer XE40 #0011 (I still need to work on the rooftop since there aren't any pics of it but i wanted to see how the scheme would come out) IMG_8452.thumb.JPG.a369d50cec44925cff5a553605ce5f73.JPG

And, since no one made the XT40 yet, I figured I'd have a go at it and make it myself... and I'm quite proud of how it came out! Again, I couldn't find any decent pics of the top so I basically used an edited version of the E40LFR's rooftop.

I was wondering if you could send the completed templates please, i would like to add them to my paper bus collection. Btw the New Flyer XE40 and the NYC MTA 2018 New Flyer XN60 #1016 are the ones i really want, and they look pretty cool.

It's done. I hope you don't mind, but I took off the bus number (in case someone wants to set it to a bus number themselves). I didn't do the left side that well in my opinion, but this is the best I could do.

Last build of 2017, which happens to be one of my own creations!! ^^

IMG_20171231_171638.thumb.jpg.1ec7b5615390017375aefab61f53b685.jpgIMG_20171231_171654.thumb.jpg.78e704277f42342e4db1a9f3faf2a4aa.jpg

First of mine for 2018 is still uncertain, as I also have a Great Lakes bulk carrier (SAGINAW), the superyacht ZEUS (ex. ECO, KATANA and ENIGMA), and also some more Hino Melpha to complement the still too small handful of them.

At last, I wish you all a Happy New Year! ^^

Just wanted to ask what is the policy and conduct surrounding repainting paper buses? Had a few fictional liveries in mind but I wanted to ensure that I wouldn't be stepping on any toes by doing so.

I think the general rule is that you can repaint a bus if it's for yourself, if you want to post it you should ask the creator's permission. Plus, you should keep the copyright info and stuff on the bus.

FIRST 2018 launch!!

Mitsubishi Fuso AeroAce of Keisei Group's「Tokyo Airport Shuttle」service!

As usual, be sure to respect the TaC (see signature below, shift to classic website if on mobile device (ask in last resort)).

It depends on each individual TaC we create independently, but the common understanding is to never repaint, but rather use blank patterns; try using the search engine, and you might just be lucky.

If the aforementioned is unsuccessful, try asking around.

 


First assembly of 2018 is one I assembled before on the 1/50 scale, and I am now complementing with the respective 1/70 scale.

IMG_20180102_235137.thumb.jpg.1d1a736a41d13199ed412b8bc08dc839.jpgIMG_20180102_235155.thumb.jpg.1c48ab07e3a16576d8348dd5f16048d5.jpg

Now I will turn my attention for another Mitsubishi Fuso AeroAce, this time from the Tokai University, which has the distinction of being registered as a 'private passenger vehicle' (license plate with green characters over white background, just like a privately owned family car).

By my examination, it will be a job for a mere half hour.
