Bus Bothering Balls Up

It was all going so swimmingly well. Various bits of plasticard were tortured into shape, and held up to the remains of the the hacksawed diecast model

First mistake, the front grill was wrong!! So a rebuild was in order.

The correct version is on the right, the buggered up version, is in the bin.

then I try the wheels for size, and realise to my horror, I have miscalculated the width of the wheel arch, and the wheels don't fit, the tyre sticks out, and that is a just not on you know!!

So back to the plasticard pile I go, and start the process all over again!!
I may be able to salvage version 1, and use it to make a truck, lets hope so, as its more time wasted otherwise.
Now you know why it takes me so bleedin long to make one poxy model :-(


  1. What a pain with the wheels mate but I cant wait to see what you do with it next

  2. Reminds me of the gold old days at British Leyland . . . .

  3. Gaaahhh... I love it when a model comes together, but when it doesn't, it's a real pain in the rear. I hope the next attempt goes better.
