Model Buses Collection and Iwan's Bus Bits announce three new releases
Model Buses Collection & Iwan's Bus Bits announce the first three releases under the Model Buses Creations (MBC) brand. The stated aim of MBC, a partnership between Mark Oakley of Model Buses Collection and Iwan Jones of Iwan's Bus Bits, is to create highly-detailed model buses in miniature for collectors and enthusiasts across the UK and around the world.
The first release is a Britbus Leyland/Volvo Olympian, available for the first time in kit form, with the added option to choose either early Leyland or late Volvo versions, with parts for both included. Also included will be a set of waterslide transfers to add the finishing touches to your completed model in the livery of your choice. The model will be limited to 100 standard units worldwide, with an additional 50 special editions later on. Priced at £35.00 + delivery, this model is available now.
Coming soon will be BMC's second release - a very special commission in association with Stagecoach London and Macmillan Cancer Support, in partnership with Northcord Model Company. It's a very special edition of NMC's Alexander Dennis Enviro 400H MMC to commemorate a vehicle operated by Stagecoach London. This project will be raising funds for essential cancer care and support. The Model will reflect WLT 546 with the fleet number 10301 and, as you would expect from NMC, this highly detailed miniature example looks truly splendid. Limited to 504 Units worldwide, the model is due late in Q1, priced at £65.90 + delivery.
BMC's third release will be another Alexander Dennis Enviro 400H MMC, decorated in all over standard issue TFL red paint work with blue seating to the interior. The fully-assembled model will be finished without fleet, registration or destination details, to allow the collector to finish as they wish. Limited to 108 units worldwide, these are to be priced at £65.90 + delivery.
