Northcord Model Company has announced the release of UK6510
Northcord Model Company has announced the release of UK6510, the second 1/76 scale release of the long awaited 10.5 metre single door casting of this distinctive, modern, double-decker in the UK. UK6510 represents fleet number 200 (SN17 MTO) with single door bodywork and was new to Bournemouth Transport Ltd in 2017. No 200 carries full Yellow Buses livery and branding for route 3.
The features of the branding worthy of particular note are the “contactless on every bus” and “To and From Bournemouth Rail Station” on the front, and “Direct up to every 10 mins Mon to Sat daytimes Bournemouth to Castlepoint” to the back. Additionally, the prominent route number “3” along with the key locations served, are repeated on both sides. Further additional details carried by the model include the free Wi-Fi logo on the front and rear. The Alexander Dennis Enviro400 MMC is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square, gasket-mounted windows and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another very noticeable feature on this UK6510 model is its dual tree protectors at the front. The front dome on the model is significant, with curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck. Northcord 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.
The brand new 10.5 metre Enviro400 MMC bus models will be distributed by in the UK by John Ayrey Die-Casts Limited (www.ayrey.co.uk) and is limited to 1,008 pieces worldwide.
