In addition, I have a MiWay 2019 Nova Bus LFS HEV that will be entering service this fall.

How did I not see this event coming, but I kinda think MiWay is trying to copycat the TTC. Nah, maybe it’s just me.

Also you forgot the A/C unit on the Vicinity.

Ordering the same bus as another company does not a copycat make.

Not to mention that the TTC was not the first agency to use Nova hybrids to begin with.

Mmmh...

Guess when depression caused by problems at your job tries to take you over, you respond the best way you possibly can.

My response to it is this: VDL Futura FDD2, the very first papercraft to circulate on the Web.

FDD130tease.thumb.png.800a74ed1103b9b36214ad893fa4a737.png

For now, the FDD2 130, then later in the day comes the FDD2 141.

I am still considering if should I post the upcoming FDD2 models here - obviously referring to completed models only - as Google unfortunately now fetches the files from here, and that may cause unwelcomed minds outside the forum to use them as they please.

Therefore it may well happen that this will become as exclusive as the Setra S531 DT; anyway if you like what you see and wish to have a peek around and ask for a specific paint job, just ask and I might just do it. ^^

Paint jobs in consideration:

  • Kupers (Netherlands)
  • Roland Zemp (Switzerland)
  • FLiXBUS (generic)
  • Solmar Tours (Netherlands)
  • Vita (Italy)
  • Luksusowe Autokary「Fun Club」(Poland)
  • Bus Eireann (Ireland)
  • Helsingor Turisttrafik (Denmark)

Keep in mind that possibly not all will be done, but if there is a particular request on each of them, the possibility is considerably boosted.

  • Helsingor Turisttrafik (Denmark)

First VDL Futura FDD2 is out, and it is the longer, 14.1m one; as the quote above says, Helsingor Turisttrafik of Denmark was the chosen one.

The paint job seemed demanding, but with just a few cleverly located traces, it became much easier to play with this peculiar, sporty livery.

 

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).

Side note: I previously said I was considering if should I post this new model here or not, but if my rules are fully met, then new ones will come out without need to request - I will give it some time before new ones are added, in order to see if the rules are met, therefore in the meantime private requests are imposed for now.

Other than that, have fun. ^^

The first FDD2-130 is also there, Roland Zemp of Switzerland. ^^

While the Helsingor Turisttrafik one was simpler than thought, not the tide simply reverted on this one; finding proper and clean stuff to work with, I had to rely on PhotoFiltre much more.

Nevertheless, when you want it done, you resort to whatever possibilities and experience you have at your disposal.

Just wondering if anyone  can do something like for Powder River Coach, Rim Rock Stage Trailways, TNM&O coach, Kerrville bus (KBC), Arrow Express, and more on the list to come.

It may look too much far fetched for a transit operator which was founded in 2010 and operates 'just' about 250 vehicles for the almost entirety of Savona (a seaside province of the Liguria region in Italy).

But still, the idea of a Mercedes-Benz CapaCity for the TPL - Trasporto Pubblico Locale nella Provincia di Savona - isn't anywhere near bad/uninteresting. ^^

As a bonus and because the agency was founded in 2010, there is a commemorative mark in the trailer part's broadsides towards it's front.

Also excited that I will be back to Savona in exactly one week, same hotel, but even more time to stay and more funds to better enjoy the place, so let's see if I can build this before I get there. ^^

I've created one of my first paper bus templates, the Grande West Vicinity in Oakville transit specs. I will continue to update it if needed.

 

 

 

On the Vicinity, there's an AC unit on the rooftop and your version is missing the marker lights on the bumper. For future versions, I would also suggest the "stock" variant without the EASB bumpers and the three lengths (27.5', 30' and 35'). Also of note, the AC unit on Vicinity buses built after 2017 have the Spheros logo on it.

Also would it be possible to request an HSR version, with CNG propulsion? And perhaps an Orangeville Transit one (either 201601, 201602 or 201801)?

Sometimes all it takes is a brilliant mind having a brilliant idea...

...While you are enjoying yourself with a cup of pure Swiss made maple walnut ice cream.

Like a lightning bolt it struck me straight on, and the following is the result.

Silver Crown**** and Golden Crown***** versions available.

The finest admiral model Mercedes-Benz has is still the Travego 17 SHD, the giant 14 meter long super hi-decker which has been so popular in Turkey, now meets the colors of Moevenpick of Switzerland, in a concept of mine which I hope it may give the sensation of bold and luxurious looks.

I'm probably going straight to build the Golden Crown one in the massive 1/35 scale, then building both in 1/85 scale whenever I get more ink and photo paper.

Hey all, 

I was wondering if anybody could make if anybody could make buses of the San Joaquin county rtd, tracy tracer, San Luis Obispo transit, and San Luis Obispo rta 

best of all to what I’ve noticed is that all four of these operators all carry Gillig buses!!!!! If anybody could do that I’ll do a free commission

 

here they are
