One of our readers, Tom, sent me some pics of this Studebaker bus from 1937 as a 1/25 scale resin body. As Tom says, the kit includes the body, complete interior with seats and dash plus headlights and frame – but no window glass.
The moulding looks pretty good – but that logo on the fron grille seems a bit low detailed.
Tom also noted that there are no chromed parts in this kit. The back has some details that can be surely brought to light with some painting. However, the lines above the rear windows look like seams from the moulding and they surely need to get filled. The window frames on the side of the bus look kind of rough from this perspective.
Tom bought the front end actually separately from the rest of the bus – it is the front of a Studebaker truck. As he also noted, you may have to come up with your own safety signs to replicate a school bus, since they are not included in the resin kit – or you just build any regular bus. Tom is working on a hot rod bus!
He also gave me the website from where he got the model: http://www.freewebs.com/rmrresin/
You may remember that I posted pictures and videos of school buses some time ago. There was one video with a 37 Chevrolet bus! Anyway, there was some discussion on that post about how to build such a model – there were some people interested in the topic. Thanks Tom for sharing this information with us!
