Not bad, for a first try. Try and download this..
http://cache.lego.com/bigdownloads/buildinginstructions/4560079.pdf
Build the bus with LDD using the above PDF starting on page 18.
After building (although it's 6-studs wide it doesn't matter), change the colours afterwards. This helped me alot when I make my buses.
If your feelin' a bit cocky, try to mix-and-mash differnet types of bricks.


Good Luck:)

P.S. FYI Bus doors on the PDF are opposite

Thanks BS! It would've been better if I found the wheel guards and how to build the turntable part ( this was either going to be a B12BLEA, the MAN, the Scania or the Iveco ) and how to put the decals on. If you can tell me where to find the bricks, how to build the turntable and put decal on please PM me.
Again thanks BS!

Cheers!

Hi again,
I've just done another bus. It's a Scania L94UB with a NCBC 'Downtown' body.
Anyway, here's the pics.
Please note, this is a trail livery.

Cheers!

I've been away for a while cause I'm still working on that Rockingham Railway station out of LEGO, it is verrry complex. Now you try the TP3003 to TP 3010 series now (virtually the same model). I haven't had the time to design it yet. Good luck my protégé lol :)

2 questions.
1. Where is it this year? I went to the 2005 one and that was at Claremont Showgrounds.
2. If I see you, can you please show me your modals?
I'll try to come as I'm with my Dad on that weekend.

Cheers!

2 answers.
1. Claremont Showgrounds, Silver Jubiliee Pavilaion. Trains WILL stop at Showgrounds stations that weekend and once your off, signage will show you the right direction.
2. Course I will, there're same models I showcased last year. Wanted new models but hardly had any money (...sigh :roll:)
Here's hoping you'll make it

Almost. The doors and the seats is Technic, while the rest is usual lego.
