Transit Graphics - New stock

Postby geracoop » Sun Oct 16, 2016 6:48 pm

Hi All

Just an FYI, I see Transit Graphics has some new stock on their website, particularly 3x O405 Mk Vs in three different liveries, and accepting preorders for the 3 door O305G.

BIG thing I noticed, was the major increase in prices. Like, why the sudden change? Must have stepped up their game in terms of detail etc. Another thing, their ONLY Adelaide Metro bus has reappeared. Only downside, along with all the other buses appearing on the site, the price has increased greatly. So if you're willing to spend a fair bit of money, now's your chance to get the one and only Adelaide bus for all you people from SA, while stocks last. Good luck :P

Is that the MAN NL232/ABM CB62A on a 145? Gotta love how there's dozens of Sydney buses, but only one from Adelaide, the City of artics.

Indeed it is the MAN NL232/ABM CB62A on the 145, 1765 to be exact. Shame there is dozens of Sydney buses, even a fair few of Melbourne and Perth ones, yet just the one Adelaide. Luckily, I have that model though :P

Gee, you are lucky. I don't, but might look for it in future. Although, having ridden on the vehicle in question I'm a little less enthusiastic. At least it's on a historic route, the 145 is no more.

Makes me feel better about parting with $150 to get my slimy hands on 3140 doing the 431.
I'd expect them to emit the bus sound as you push them along, with the new price points.

I'd expect sounds, working brake lights, working indicators, functional doors etc. The whole lot! Even though they are just meant for display purposes ;)

the reasonfor the change of price for Australian models, the Australian dollar has weakened and as a result, buying items from Hong Kong is working out a bit more expensive.... its the same in the United Kingdom with model buses due to a weaker pound buying items from HK.... the plus side is selling items made in Australia and UK is cheap labour for euroland until the euro goes yoyo again.
