Scale Model News

Revell has launched a model of the archetypal London Bus - a Routemaster in 1:24 scale.
The kit features the lengthened RML version, the central section having smaller, square windows. In the real thing, this was achieved simply by inserting a 610 mm (28 in) section.

All those tartan-patterned seats so beloved by London Transport are supplied as decals. Markings for two specific buses are supplied - RML 2273 is for the Victoria Station route 76, without advertising, while RML 2757 is the Piccadilly Circus route 38, with adverts for the sides that include the British Museum, Jacob’s Cream Crackers and ‘The Rod Stewart Musical’.

Both Leyland and Scania engines are supplied
