Hi all heres one i started a while ago it seems to be a great kit, well detailed and fitting






This is a very detailed kit but I've added quite a bit more and will be adding more (maybe even lighting but that is a bit ambitious)

Hi all well I'm not sure I will actually do this but I've added some blue leds for the emergency lights, maybe I will and maybe I won't we will just have to see how complex it gets.

Hi all well it has working emergency lights.

I've glued aluminium foil behind the headlight holes to help them look more like headlights.

Hi all well here is the next bit, you really get a lot of kit for your money with this beast but I think I'm nearing the end now.

Hi all near the end now, loads of decals to add but the basic kit is nearly done. This really is a lot of kit for the money and I have had so many ideas for different versions of this so this won't be my last build of this or the London bus (another incredible kit)

Hi all nearing the end now (loads of decals to add and a small amount of painting to do) I've really enjoyed this kit not found a bad fitting part on it, although it is quite complex and some parts need a few trial fits till you figure out how they actually go together.

Hi all well it's finished and I have to say it was a very enjoyable kit to build with not a single fit issue.

Thanks Revell for an amazing kit.

Looks good! It's an impressive kit once finished! You're the only one NOT to complain about a Revell kit in a long while. Myself I gave up hope... but let's see what's going to happen with Revell of Germany after Hobbico bancrupcy... Cograts on finishing the model!
