Miniart 1/35th LGOC Type B Bus

Over the years ago have made the old Airfix B Type bus kit. Likely a bit of a rite of passage for many modellers I feel.

When I saw Miniart bringing one out, thought why not indeed and got myself one. As always with Miniart somewhat over engineered with multiple parts when not so many would be quite enough. Many parts very thin and fragile and hence not everything used.

However construction and fit is good and much better than the old Airfix kit. The end result I feel looks good and I enjoyed making this kit enormously.

  1. Fantastic work Mark. Looks like 1:1 scale! amazing!
    All the best!

  2. I also built the Airfix version when it was first released. I only painted the tyres for a “realistic” finish. I remember it being a quite sturdy model as it wasn’t a shelf sitter but often deployed on various missions. I really like what you have achieved with this build.

  3. This is a great build, looks great. It’s has my favorite brand of tea.
