Northcord Model Company has announced the release of UK6528
Northcord Model Company has announced the release of UK6528, the sixth release of the 10.3 metre, 2-door casting of this distinctive, modern, double-decker in the United Kingdom. The sixth livery to be carried on the brand-new Alexander Dennis Enviro400H MMC model is Stagecoach London, produced in unique London red livery. UK6528 represents fleet number 11035 (SN18 KUB) that has 10.3 metre, dual-door bodywork and was new to Stagecoach London in 2018. 11035 has a Euro6 smart hybrid driveline, together with an innovative high resolution LED destination display. The model carries the roof fleet number SCG 11035. This bus is based at Stagecoach London’s West Ham Garage where it operates on busy route 474 which runs between Canning Town and Manor Park.
Buses running on the streets of London used to have the traditional roller destination blinds in order to suit the complicated service network in the city. With the popularity of electronic destination blinds in other cities all over England, Scotland and Wales, London buses are keeping the roller sign until the introduction of high resolution LED signs produced by Hanover. With the significantly increased number of LEDs on the new signs, the text displayed appears as continuous screen printing, rather than as a dot matrix. The integrity of the chosen font is maintained and, even in poor weather conditions such as heavy rain, or in bright sunshine, the legibility of the sign remains excellent. The special, comprehensive high resolution LED destination blind is 100% reproduced onto the UK6528 model.
The Alexander Dennis Enviro400H MMC UK6528 is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square-cornered, patented quick-release windows of the real bus and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible. Another main feature on the UK6528 model is its individual 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. The brand new 10.9 metre Enviro400 MMC bus model is limited to 1,008 pieces worldwide.
