It was a lot of work but finally they are ready. Two routemasters. A classic London bus. One of the two with the tourists shape.
The closed version is made with mainly tulip wood and the orther out of ash. The small dark parts are from merbau, wenge and treated tulip wood. The tyres are ebonized oak.

Equel to the past also from this one I have made a drawing and if you like to make this bus by yourself you can find more at my webpage.

It was LBD who made a video from it which you can find on YouTube

Phenrica started a video about his build process which you can fine here

Soon I will do a blog about it.

THANKS FOR WATCHING.

Absolutely first class sir, so much detail!

Well done just doesn’t say enough on your craftsmanship and engineering.

Very! Very!! Interesting!!!
I’ve been saying I’ll be doing scroll saw projects for a while but I see a lot a places where a scroll saw can be used on this great looking bus. :-]
I’ve been seeing these buses ever since I started making models and had it in my head that they would be a fun interesting build.
So I guess I’m saying I want a ticket for a ride on this bus and can see getting a ticket for the plans too, in the near future. LOL

A great looking pair of models Dutchy! My only question is how a Duck can use his wings on a computer mouse so well to make that great video?

It would be interesting to see if its the same as the Regent we had in Australia many years ago.
I had been wanting to make a scale model of one for a few years now.

I would be making it out of plywood and painting it in the colours I remember from the days my grandmother took us to the beach at The Spit Sydney.

Excellent job there Dutchy, really like the contrasting timber and your ebonizing is really good as well.
