Hunting for a bus
« on: Sat Mar, 25, 2017, 06:06:PM »
Hi all! I'm looking to build a artist's tour bus. Does anyone know if there is a motor coach model available anywhere? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

1/24 or 1/25 scale would be great. I'd hate to go too small. A Prevost, MCI or something of that nature.

Check HLJ and EBay for tour bus models. Fujimi makes some nice ones at 1/32 scale.

There is not an MCI or provost kit out there but this kit would provide a good base for scratchbuilding one. it would give you a good start. https://www.modelcars.com/revell-omnibus-neoplan-vip-class-cityliner-tour-bus
