Corgi collectible envy . . .

. . . probably explains why I've been doing British vehicle recolors for the last two uploads. This time it's a kitbash and recolors of Paper Bus Connection's Guy Arab V single decker and Daimler CVG5/A double decker into the Leyland Tiger PS1 ECW and Brtistol L ECW single deck buses. There's so few 1950s British single decker bus models that it was worth the work to kitbash these two, and Corgi does a good number of liveries. Believe it or not, I picked versions which had the highest resolution pictures where the tiniest text remained readable (I'm obsessive that way).

Corgi uses the same casting for these two, so I will too - these should go nicely with Denis' Bedford and Volker's 2014 circus themed 1950s Britsh vehicles. Add the free OO railroad buildings from UK websites and there's your diorama!

As usual, these will be available pending moderator approval.

Even more Corgi madness

When I found a Hong Kong Paperbus of the Bristol Lodekka I just had to recolor another of those rare models. It needed some editing to get the right bug-eyed front of the real thing. I did look at real pictures but used Corgi pictures as the main reference.

Scots and Welsh this time, to offset the 'London Bus' stereotype!

1 new recolor . . .

. . . for now, I'm waiting on permission to share another recolor. This time it's the Regal Reliant Supervan from 3wheelers.com (yes, the notorious Del Boy microvan).

Just using MS Powerpoint limited what I could do so no drastic recolors, just shades of blue. I am really pleased at how my BOAC microvan recolor came out, and it's more accurate than Corgi's version as it has the 1966 front grille.

Considering how little space it used I added another recolor, but Mr. Bean's archenemy was too easy. I settled on the 1970 'Safari' special version with black roof and side stripes, roof window and registration plates from the 3wheelers.com commemorative model.

To be available pending moderator approval as usual. Is anyone actually looking forward to this?
