Please note, the models only just arrived and the photos are of the pre-production samples which are missing the infamous offside rear vision mirror and the last row of seats are facing the wrong way. The actual production models have these errors corrected.

For prices and availability please visit Rob's Classic Models at http://robsclassicmodels2.webs.com/2017-model-production or The Sydney Bus Museum Bus Shop at https://www.busshop.net/

Models can be obtained from either source with the exception of the Green & Cream Worldmasters which will initially only be available direct from Rob's Classic Models

An in depth 10 page article including detailed specifications of the underfloors and their history will appear in the next issue of 'Vintage Trucks & Commercials Magazine' and a summarized 4 page article will appear in the next issue of 'Australian Bus' which will make for a great reference to these vehicles and the running changes that were progressively introduced during overhauls and whilst in service
