Northcord Model Company is releasing a seventeenth livery

Continuing the significant success of its 1/76 scale Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC, Northcord Model Company is now releasing a seventeenth livery on the 10.9 metre long, single-door casting – UK6527 in the livery of Stagecoach North Scotland. UK6527 represents fleet number 11173 (SK19 EKU) that was new to Stagecoach North Scotland in early 2019 – 11173 was one of fifteen new Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC SmartHybrid double-deckers deployed at Macduff depot for service 35 (Aberdeen-Banff / Elgin) by April 2019.

The model carries a colourfully-branded livery for service 35, heading to Macduff, and onto Aberdeen. The comprehensive livery and branding are fully reproduced on the new model.

The branding features large “SERVICE 35” and “GET A BONNIE VIEW / FAE THE TOP DECK” text, together with an icon illustration on both sides, along with key locations served “35, ABERDEEN, BANFF , ELGIN” on the upper deck windows to both sides. Further branding on each side includes  “TOP UK DEPOT FOR ECO DRIVING MACDUFF 2016 2017 2018 2019”. The wording on the main side, upper panels within the advert frames is phrased with reference to the “Doric”, the famous and iconic dialect associated with the north-east of Scotland.

NMC’s Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC is a one-piece casting with clean lines that accentuate the square, gasket-mounted windows and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another feature is the single tree protector at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck.

Northcord Model Company is also creating new design standards within the interior of both saloons. These features, inside the compartments, will represent the real, outstanding layout of the Enviro400 MMC, such as the extensive portrayal of handrails on upper deck and lower deck, etc.
