Re: Skybus Optare Solo

Some pictures of the Belfast Metro and Northern Ireland blue liveried Translink N.I optares, they have longer regular sized optares, I think the turning circle on these buses is poor and the short wheelbase Dennis Enviro 200 is more suited.

Re: Top Gear Oct 2014( New Mercedes-Benz 0305 and IBC buses)

Unfortunately when designing the tooling for the Atlantean and indeed, all the Trux and EFE range, they are designed to be held together by a pole with plastic rivits, if you look at Top Gears models, they've been designed to be held together by the bumper being grooved like the old Dinky Atlantean ...

Re: Top Gear Oct 2014( New Mercedes-Benz 0305 and IBC buses)

Yeah, most likely... You will find some factories might do 7 EFE castings of which one of them is a Trux model perhaps and also Corgi models too.... Resins for your Transit Graphics are produced on a much smaller scale but theres plenty happening for you, over here, we have proposed resins promised ...

Re: Top Gear Oct 2014( New Mercedes-Benz 0305 and IBC buses)

I hope theres more varied liveries to come, I hope the leopard happens too... as regards the 2 poles, these hold the model together so are part ofnthe strength and I feel EFE have their fingers in their production as their models are in the trux range too and the atlantean has an efe feel to it too....

Re: CDi double decker model pic

I think they are imminent, I rang this morning (your tea time!!) & gave credit card details, if Im lucky, they will be ready by the 7th of Nov and my friend who lives in Canberra might be able to pick them up and bring them to Dublin in her suitcase, I feel sometimes postage can be like a rugby ball...
